The CIBA VISION® Academy for Eyecare Excellence™ has expanded the reach of its highly-regarded professional education programs with online learning modules and an “app” for iPhone® users called “Academy2GO.”
iPhoneFourteen online learning modules cover topics ranging from eye anatomy to multifocal soft lens fitting. Some courses are designated for the eye care practitioner (ECP) and others are designed for his or her staff members. Certain courses are accredited so that ECPs can obtain CE credits while learning from the convenience of their office or home.
Each learning module takes about 40 minutes to complete, although the user may pause the program at any time, allowing busy ECPs and staff members to complete the work in shorter increments. At the end of the module, the user takes an online test, which is scored instantly. After scoring is complete, the user can print out a certificate of completion that is suitable for framing or submission to a local licensing board for continuing education consideration.
