CPD Manager Bettina Noelle-Fox presents prizes to some lucky winners at Optometry Tomorrow 2019 in Birmingham
Optometrists today work in a rapidly changing professional environment. Keeping knowledge and skills up-to-date through continuing education and training (CET) 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 CET is a mandatory requirement of the General Optical Council (GOC) and more information about the GOC’s CET 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.
