Paediatric dispensing interactive CET module

This module is a supervised course of learning to address a regulated area of dispensing optician practice. The module consists of a package of text-based learning materials for reference and further online research into the topic. The objective is to reproduce as far as possible the experience of a live discussion workshop, by providing personalised tutor responses to written work by the participant. The participant will work through the learning materials which also provide self-assessment activities.

This module is approved for 5 CET points, four of which are interactive.


  • Dispensing opticians:
    • communication, standards of practice, optical appliances, refractive management, ocular abnormalities, paediatric dispensing

Each element will take 2 – 3 hours to explore the resources fully and complete the assessment.
