C&K LOC offers  free CET programme annually to local optometrists & dispensing Opticians. Our events are very popular and sometimes over subscribed. For this reason we will be implementing a waiting list policy. Please do not worry you will be notified if this applies to your application for a place on an event. In the interest of fairness and respect for colleagues C&K LOC also reserves the right to temporarily exclude any optometrist or dispensing optician our CET events who repeatedly fails to attend booked CET events. If you are unable to attend please contact one of the LOC officer more than 48 hrs before an event.

 

IMPORTANT:

As of October 2019 Colleagues who fail to attend an event with less the 48 hrs notice to the LOC before an event will have their registration cancelled for the next event in the CET program, (if you are registered) and put you on a “reserve list”. If spaces are available for this event, we will let you know in advance. You will be able to register for future events next year as normal. (We will of cause consider any exceptional circumstances).

Please understand this is done to keep access to these course a fair as possible and give all colleagues a fair chance to gain their interactive CET points locally.
