Education services leader Upward Mobility announced today the availability of their Certified Ophthalmic Assistant (COA) exam prep app. The app is available on iTunes for iPhone, iPad, and Mac; Google Play for Android; Amazon Kindle; Windows 8 and Windows Phone; and Nook.
The Joint Commission on Allied Health Personnel in Ophthalmology (JCAHPO) is the international certifying agency for ophthalmic medical professionals. The Certified Ophthalmic Assistant is the first level of certification and is typically achieved by undergoing a training program, then passing the COA exam. Individuals who receive this certification are permitted to perform duties such as pupil testing, measuring visual acuity, obtaining patient medical history, giving patient instructions regarding tests and medications, and installing ocular medications.
The four hundred questions written exclusively for Upward Mobility by medical experts are now available to test students currently studying for the COA exam in each of these areas. Additionally, the app contains two different modes: Study Mode is performed at the student’s pace and provides answers with explanation to aid in the student’s learning, while Test Mode allows the user to set their own time and question constraints to simulate the testing environment.
“We are pleased to launch our app for this important health care field,” said Victoria Slingerland, President and Co-founder of Upward Mobility. “We hope that by providing a wide array of questions and the ability to adjust the learning pace, students will find our app to be a valuable resource in completing their COA certification.”
Upward Mobility is a test prep app enterprise based in Boston, and is a 100% woman and minority-owned business (SOWMBA-certified). Upward Mobility prides itself on providing free and low-cost test prep for over 150 professional and academic standardized exams, including high school and college admissions tests, IT certification exams, business and professional development exams, teaching exams, and medical board exams.
