Office Manager Certification Program
An ODX Exclusive
OD Excellence continues to lead the way in innovative new programs for the optometric community. To complement our rich set of programs for ODs, ODX launched the "Office Manager Certification Course (OMCC)."
"I have managed a moderate sized practice for 20 years. Having an MBA degree, I was "just sure" I wouldn't learn anything new with this series...I was wrong!!!...and gladly so." --Brister Shum
The first of its kind to feature education, testing, certification and continued enhancement and support, the OMCC is accredited by The University of Houston, College of Optometry. Our program delivers critical information and training to ensure your practice excels through the efforts of your entire staff.
Office Manager Certification Course - Live and Interactive - The next Live session begins in January 2019. Registration will begin October 2018.
The Office Manager Certification Course is a 12-hour program that enables attendees to master the skills necessary to excel as an Office Manager in an Eye Care practice. You will receive a link to watch the live webinar. The webinars will take place the first and second week of the month. During the live course you will be able to ask questions and get immediate response from the instructor. Once the course is complete, students must pass a rigorous exam to ensure they have attained the skills required to receive designation as a "Certified Office Manager."

We are now offering a remote version of our Office Manager Certification Program! If you don't have the time to attend the live webinars you can now take the class at your own pace and still receive the same information and support as you would with the live course. You can finish in just a few short months or you can take your time. (Please note that testing will take place in June and December no matter when you finish the course).
