World-Class Training for Doctors & Therapists

Emergent has the only COVD endorsed vision therapist training course on the market. Our VT 101 course comes with personal mentorship, progress quizzes, oral reviews, and written final examinations. All results and summaries are prepared for the managing doctor at the end of the course.

We also offer a VT 201 course that builds upon the 101 training. Here we cover advanced topics related to vision therapy. This is particularly a good course for an optometrist wanting to start offering VT in their clinic


Our VT 101 and VT 201 courses are 50% off if you are an autoship member.  For doctors who are looking for CE credit, we have COPE-certified versions of our VT 101 and VT 201 courses.

We are also proud to announce the addition of Online Sanet Serminar Series. Robert Sanet's internationally renowned live 5-weekend series in San Diego has been professionally recorded and produced by the Joe Lia, the producer of Survivor.
