Get ready for the new continuing competency program

Did you complete your Continuing Education cycle in 2017? Congratulations! Maintaining your skills and competence is an extremely important part of being a licensed optician, and completing your cycle requirements is a huge accomplishment!
Every three years, opticians in BC submit their continuing education requirements, which represent their continuous development and growth in their field. The College is always happy to see the many different activities that opticians are participating in, upon receiving and reviewing the submissions. It gives us great confidence that opticians are committed to ensuring that patients in BC are receiving safe and quality care.
We are excited about that commitment continuing in 2018, with a brand new Continuing Competency Program! If you are starting a new education cycle this year, remember that you will no longer need to accumulate credits for submission. Instead, you will be starting this new program, which you will be able to manage online as of April. You should have received an email with more information about what to expect, but can read even more about it on our website, here.
