A Company of Educators

KMK Board Certification Services was founded in 2010 as an affiliate of KMK Educational Services,which provides board exam review services to thousands of optometry students in the United States and Canada.   We strive to maintain a modern, clinically-focused review curriculum without sacrificing scientific accuracy.  Our instructors believe there is a huge difference between relaying information and actually teaching it, and we are passionate about doing the latter.
