The Optometry Blog was created in 2006 as a part of an initiative between Clearview Training and Flame Health Ltd to provide class leading CET, Training and Development and Pre-Registration training to the UK, European and Global Optical community through an innovative web based solution.
The focus of the site is to provide Optometrists, Dispensing Opticians and associated Optical professionals the opportunity to access GOC, AOI, SAOA & OAA accredited CET Podcasts in a convenient way. By using the Optometry Blog, Optical professionals can access and download accredited Podcasts from leading figures within the sector. The podcasts are fully transferable to a number of mediums and once consumed you return to the Optometry Blog to complete the relevant multiple-choice questionnaire and to receive the relevant CET Points. This forward thinking solution provides the opportunity to have flexibility of learning whilst on the move and the convenience of having CET available at your fingertips.
Pre-Registration trainees are also catered for in a separate area of the Optometry Blog which is dedicated to providing support and training around the College of Optometrists� Quarterly and Final Assessments and examinations for Non-EEA Qualified Optometrists. In the Pre-Registration arena you will find streamable audio files and downloadable PDF documents which cover all aspects of the Quarterly and Final Assessments and are delivered by current College of Optometrists Examiners and Assessors. Therefore throughout your Pre-Registration year you will have an available and comprehensive support mechanism, which is conveniently, available to you and which provides relevant and accurate information, which has been designed to help you pass first time.
The final element, which knits together the Optometry Blog, Optometry�s online community, is the interactive blog feature. This is where the contributors and registered users of the Optometry Blog can post, comment and converse with other members of the Global Optical community on areas of common interest, what�s going on within the sector or perhaps post an opinion on a particular aspect of Optometry where they require other peoples input. Registration is free and allows you to post and comment on all topics.
In addition to this, your guide to passing first time: covering the quarterly & final assessments and Non-EEA exams.
