OPTIK, 20/20 and Opticians Association Partner to Provide Pilot CE Program
Optik Magazine and the 20/20 Continuing Education Opticianry Study Center are teaming up to pilot the delivery of CE programs in both English and French to Canadian opticians in collaboration with the Opticians Association of Canada (OAC).
Each party brings unique resources to the initiative. 20/20, published by Jobson Medical Information is the one of the largest developers of optical continuing education programs having over 70 CE courses in print and online on a variety of eye care topics. The OAC provides a secure and convenient 24-7 online delivery mechanism providing immediate feedback and ConEd tracking system for Canadian Opticians. VuePoint’s print and digital media, including Optik and InfoClip.ca, will bring awareness to the CE opportunities to Opticians across the country.
Luxottica has provided an education grant for the pilot CE course on the importance of eye protection from harmful UV rays and bringing premium sun eyewear to the forefront of the practice. The online course will be available at the OAC website as of December 1, 2015.
