Heidelberg Engineering shares 2019 CET plan

Roadshows will return alongside a programme of courses at the equipment company’s Academy Training Centre

Heidelberg CET event

Heidelberg Engineering has announced that it will bring its optical coherence tomography (OCT) roadshow back in 2019 as part of its continuing education and training (CET) programme.

Optometrists and dispensing opticians will learn how to use OCT parameters to assess a patient’s risk of glaucoma and earn three interactive CET points.

The roadshow events will take place in London, Gloucester, Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Plymouth.

The Heidelberg Engineering Academy Training Centre will also host a number of courses for optometrists and dispensing opticians, such as OCT operation and interpretation, which will be worth seven interactive CET points.

Director of clinical affairs at Heidelberg Engineering, Christopher Mody, said: “The comprehensive education programme from the Heidelberg Engineering Academy offers training in acquiring the best images and interpreting the results to both new and experienced OCT users.”

“Our courses are always interactive and encourage peer-to-peer networking so that participants have the opportunity to learn from each other and share their success stories,” he added.
