The BOC conducts a variety of surveys to track changes in the field of ophthalmic imaging and to define the job functions of ophthalmic photographers. The job functions covered by the CRA and OCT-C examinations, the level of importance of each task, and the method of testing are all determined based on Job Analysis Surveys which are conducted periodically in compliance with the recommendations of the National Commission on Certifying Agencies (NCCA).
