CET - 2010 and beyond

22 Nov 2007

Back to news listing

Next month the GOC is set to launch a CET consultation to consider ideas for changes to the next CET cycle, beginning 1 January 2010. At the November meeting of Council, members discussed new and existing principles of the CET scheme that will be included in the consultation. Areas of discussion included a ‘rolling’ three year cycle, and the possibility of introducing different points requirements for optometrists and dispensing opticians, to reflect different levels of risk. Other possible questions for consultation are: whether registrants should be required to gain points across a spread of competency areas; and whether there should be a restriction on the number of points gained through distance learning. Further details of the consultation will published on the GOC website in the next few weeks.
