Due to rapidly changing circumstances in relation to government and public health advice for COVID-19, ABDO have made the difficult decision to cancel all planned ABDO regional CET face-to-face events with immediate effect until mid-July. We will look to postpone some events to later in the year where possible but anticipate a number of events will not be able to be replaced in 2020.
We are aware many members rely on ABDO to support them in acquiring their mandatory minimum CET points, and that ABDO regional CET events form a large part of this. ABDO are committed in delivering the member benefit of the provision of sufficient CET to attain at least your minimum CET requirement over the CET cycle, with a full variety of competencies. Regular, monthly CET via distance learning article in Dispensing Optics and interactive CET via monthly webinars will continue to ensure the minimum annual requirement of 6 CET points can easily be obtained by ABDO members.
Additionally, we are exploring further options of interactive online delivery of CET and will continue to keep members informed of developments. As usual, any members with concerns about their mandatory CET requirements can contact ABDO CET to discuss their circumstances at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01206 734155.
