As a requirement of national registration, optometrists must complete a minimum of 80 points of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities over two registration periods. The Australian College of Optometry is committed to ensuring optometrists have access to high quality, innovative CPD.
In general, ACO CPD is open to optometrists (ACO members and non-members), optometry students and other health professionals. There are specific requirements for registrants wishing to attend clinical workshops or other events where there is direct examination of subjects. ACO certificates courses are generally only available to optometrists currently registered in Australia or New Zealand. For more information please refer to individual courses or events.
