Technicians & Nurses

The International Joint Commission on Allied Health Personnel in Ophthalmology (IJCAHPO®) is pleased to sponsor the Technicians & Nurses Program, July 23-25, 2021 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV. 

Technicians and Nurses Program

IJCAHPO is the international certifying agency for allied ophthalmic personnel. Certification is available at 3 levels: assistant, technician, and medical technologist, along with subspecialty certifications available for surgical assisting, ultrasound biometrist, diagnostic sonographer, scribe certification, and corporate assistant.


Included in the registration fee for the two and one-half day Clinical and Surgical/ASC program are an additional 5 on-line, on-demand courses. Registration for the on-site program must be completed first, and then you will be sent an application to register for your 5 complimentary on-line courses.

IJCAHPO is also offering the COT Certification Exam Prep Course on Friday afternoon, July 23, at the Mandalay Bay Hotel. Registration for the main Technicians & Nurses program is separate from the Certification Exam Prep Course. Attendees must register and pay a fee separate and independent of the main program. Please visit the registration desk outside the course room for onsite ticket availability.

For the Technician & Nurses Program, attendees do not register for each course independently. They can choose to attend individual courses from either of the two sessions, each day. There are no individual tickets sold for courses; your badge allows access to any of the courses in this two-track program.

A joint registration category is available for those interested in attending both the ASOA and Technicians & Nurses programs. Crossover between the ASOA and Technicians & Nurses programs will be permitted to those registered in the joint registration category only. Those registered solely for either the ASOA or Technicians & Nurses program will not be allowed to crossover. All registrants in either category are welcome to attend the ASCRS program. 

Available handouts for the various programs will be included in the Program app, as well as posted on the meeting web site.
