GOC webinar to cover shift to CPD
Registrants are invited to join the GOC’s webinar to learn more about the new Continuing Professional Development scheme that begins in January
On 1 January 2022, the regulator’s CET scheme will be replaced by the new CPD scheme.
The new scheme is expected to be less prescriptive, providing registrants with more freedom to tailor their learning and development to their interests and scope of practice.
Registrants are invited to join the GOC’s Zoom webinar to learn more about the reason for the change to CPD and what this will mean for optical professionals.
The GOC also plans to discuss the new requirements, which will be introduced to make the scheme more flexible.
A summary of the CPD scheme and its requirements can be found in the GOC’s new registrant guide.
Registrants can sign up online to attend the GOC’s virtual event on 14 December at 5pm.

Book in to the GOC’s webinar for more details on the new scheme. In the meantime, to read more about the change and what this will mean for professional development post-qualification, take a look at OT’s feature The ABC of CPD from the October/November 2021 issue.
Optometry Today’s new CPD content will be available to read in the December/January edition of the magazine, while the CPD exams will launch from 5 January.
To support registrants to get a head start on meeting professional development requirements under the new CPD scheme, the AOP has developed a programme of more than 130 sessions of CPD at 100% Optical. Places for the sessions can be booked online.
