New CPD for Registrants from 2022
The Derbyshire LOC CET lead wants to update you on the changes to the GOC CET scheme.
The current 3 year CET scheme will end on 31/12/21.
Please check your CET account on the GOC website to check that you have completed the cycle and download any outstanding points, and have completed all competencies, modalities etc. Please remind all your colleagues including Dispensing Opticians and Contact Lens Opticians to do this ASAP.
If you have any queries as to meeting the requirements, please contact your professional body ASAP for further advice.
The new CPD scheme will commence on 01/01/22 and the GOC guide is here:
Derbyshire LOC will be offering CPD events under the new guidelines from 01/01/2022 for Optometrists, CLOs and DOs.
WOPEC provides education courses for Optometrists in most areas of practice: Glaucoma, Cataracts, AMD, Low Vision and MECS.
This is mostly by distance learning, which require codes to access the material. These codes can be requested by Derbyshire Optometrists from the Committee.
