VT 101 Course
Our VT 101 course is designed to provide a new vision therapist with foundational concepts and a basic knowledge of vision therapy. Our curriculum is ideal for new Vision Therapists or existing therapists preparing for their COVT boards. Here is what one of our students said about the course:
"I have been in my role of a vision therapist for a little over a year and a half and decided to take the Emergent Vision Therapy course to expand my knowledge. Since finishing the course I am exponentially more confident explaining procedures and the “why” of vision therapy tasks to patients. When I have a question about the treatment of a patient, instead of going to my supervising doctor with a question of “What should I do?”, I am now going to them with a few possible ideas or solutions and asking which solution to try."
The course has over 50 videos with 45 comprehension checks. The course also includes:
- Access to a Certified Optometric Vision Therapist mentor
- A final written exam
- A final oral review with a Certified Optometric Vision Therapist
- A printed End of Course Report for the supervising doctor that includes course/exam scores, proof of credit hours, curriculum covered, strengths/weaknesses of the student, and personalized notes regarding the student's performance.
- A printed Emergent certificate (if the students receives a passing grade)
Each of the following components make up 1/3 of the total course grade: Course quizzes, Final Written Exam, and Final Oral Exam. A passing grade to earn the Emergent Certificate is 80% or higher. Students will have 3 months to complete the course from the time of purchase on this site.
The VT 101 course is only available for individual purchase. Each therapist will need their own individual course.
Vision Therapists taking the course need to be employed by a doctor of optometry or under their guidance.
