About Docet

Optometrists today work in a rapidly changing professional environment. Keeping knowledge and skills up-to-date through continuing professional development (CPD) is essential to ensure that the services optometrists provide are fit for purpose and to assure the public of the continuing competence of practitioners. Completion of CPD is a mandatory requirement of the General Optical Council (GOC) and more information about the GOC’s CPD requirements can be found on the GOC website.

The Directorate of Optometric Continuing Education and Training (Docet) is a special Committee that was set up by the Department of Health in 1989 to oversee the management of government funds set aside for the provision of optometric continuing education and training for all UK registered optometrists

Docet produces and distributes award-winning distance learning materials, including video and audio media and e-learning. Visit the Docet Courses page to access the wide variety of available Docet training resources.

We would be delighted to receive feedback on the website or on any Docet resources - you can email us at enquiries@docet.info.
