Following the recent launch of the eLearning site, the CooperVision Learning Academy, the contact lens manufacturer is now offering interactive webinar training as part of the service including CET-accredited sessions and retail business topics. Targeted at the UK’s Eye Care Practitioners, business owners and support staff, the sessions aim to support professional development through covering a range of subjects and speakers from both inside and outside the optical industry. The first CET session launched in April and featured a special guest presentation from Professor James Wolffsohn, Professor of Optometry at Aston University. Entitled, ‘COVID-19 and contact lenses - What Eye Care Professionals should know’, Professor Wolffsohn shared his views on the current COVID-19 pandemic and what this means for contact lens practices and wearers. Like the eLearning site itself, the launch of the webinar service was expedited by CooperVision in order to provide additional support to Eye Care Practitioners and their support staff whilst many optical stores remained temporarily closed in the UK through April/May. The free-to-access service will offer a minimum of two sessions per week, including CET-accredited and bite-sized training topics, such as responding to COVID-19, myopia management, business education, product updates and many more. Where possible, live webinars will be recorded and made available for viewers to access at a time that suits them.
