- Implicit Bias Training: The new Implicit Bias Training requirement takes effect on June 1, 2022, which is one year after the promulgation of the rule. If the 90-day renewal window for your license or registration spans across June 1, 2022 the training is not required if you renew prior to June 1, 2022. However, if you choose to renew on or after June 1, 2022, the training is required. Also, the training will be required for all new applications for licensure or registration received on or after June 1, 2022. Read Department of Licensing and Regulator Affairs, Bureu of Professional Licensing Public Health Code - General Rules (page 3).

State of Michigan Continuing Education Classification
The Continuing Education (CE) classification listed for each course has been approved by the Michigan State Board of Optometry based on the COPE category definitions of CE as outlined in the Michigan State Board of Optometry - General Rules.
General Clinical Education
Education which does not fall into any of the other specific categories.
Education on topics related to symptoms of ocular conditions that include pain. Examples include pharmacology and drug interactions of analgesics, psychology of pain, and clinical applications of behavior and stress management. All optometrists must have a minimum of two hours of CE in this category in the two years preceding the application for renewal.
Education on specific pharmacological management of ocular conditions. All optometrists must have a total of 40 hours of CE in the two years preceding the application for renewal. An applicant for license renewal who holds certification to administer topical ocular diagnostic pharmaceutical agents or certification to administer and prescribe therapeutic pharmaceutical agents, or both, shall accumulate not less than 20 hours of board-approved continuing education in pharmacological management of ocular conditions.
Education on non-clinical topics such as marketing, billing, staff training and other business aspects of managing a practice. Optometrists may only use a maximum of nine hours of CE in this category in the two years preceding the application for renewal. Therefore, this category is less desirable to attendees.
