COVD offers optometrists and vision therapists the opportunity to become Board Certified in vision development, vision therapy, and vision rehabilitation. The Board certification process is administered by the International Examination and Certification Board (IECB) of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development. The IECB process includes a rigorous evaluation of the eye care professional's knowledge and abilities in providing developmental and behavioral vision care for patients.

Optometrists and therapists must be COVD members to become certified.
