ABO Advanced Examination - OptiCon West September 2018

The Advanced Certification designations, ABOC-AC and NCLE-AC, are earned only after a practitioner has attained several years of experience, completes a prescribed curriculum of advanced education, and achieves a passing score on the rigorous examinations. Test specifications are posted on this site.

Having earned the basic ABO or NCLE certification, and completed one recertification period (3 years) you are eligible to take the Advanced exams.

ABO Master and CLSA Fellows who are not currently ABO or NCLE certified, may obtain Advanced Certification by re-taking and passing the entry level examinations (NOCE and CLRE). Having passed the NOCE and/or CLRE again, the Advanced Certification status may be requested and granted, without having to take the Advanced Examination(s). A certificate will be provided upon request at a nominal fee.
