Keeping your CPD up to date with MyCPD

More than 450 optometrists have already accessed the MyCPD portal since it launched in February, taking full advantage of the range of online learning and CPD accredited courses offered by Specsavers.

The MyCPD portal is a virtual hub for optometrists that hosts live tracking of CPD points or credits and is home to a wide range of professional development resources and training.

Currently, there are 26 CPD courses on the portal, offering 52 self-accredited CPD points for Australian optometrists and 12.6 credits for New Zealand optometrists. These cover a variety of topics including Glaucoma, AMD, Diabetes, Paediatrics, Refractive Error, Contact lenses, Anterior eye, Vitreoretinal and Posterior Eye.

The MyCPD portal also houses links and resources for more than 400 resources and CPD training programs from recognised institutions including NZODOB, MiVision, ACO, Centre for Eye Health and BHV Education.

The new MyCPD portal is a fantastic example of how Specsavers is embracing technology to make optometrists’ professional lives easier. With 24/7 online access, you can undertake CPD training from any device including your mobile phone, iPad or computer.

And, all CPD training completed in the portal is automatically tracked and recorded for you, making record keeping simple.

New courses and training materials are released regularly, and are wholly available online, making it even easier for you to keep up to date with your CPD.

You can register for or login to the portal here using your APHRA or ODOB number.
