The learning area, which can be accessed via the College’s website, will provide users with an easier user experience as well as additional learning resources. The new area will enable members to keep a track of their CET points and undergo supervisor training and clinical audit training. Members will also be able to access video lectures with multiple choice questions for CET points, materials and advice for effective learning, including templates for IP optometrists.

Barbara Mason, Head of CPD for the College said: “The College is increasing its focus on professional development and on supporting members so that they can maintain their skills, meet GOC requirements, progress in their careers, and provide the highest standards of patient care. Our members told us that they wanted quick and easy access to high quality CET and CPD materials, and our aim with this new approach to online learning is to make learning as convenient, user-friendly and effective as possible. We will be developing our provision to cover all the key clinical and professional knowledge and skills optometrists need, and to support our members in practice and in their careers, and so invite them to let us know what they would like to see in the future”.

College members can assess the new learning management area on the College website.
