Vision Screening Training

The ACAO has developed training for our members to learn how to perform vision screening services. We encourage members to take the training so that they can go out and perform this service in their communities.

The training is made up of two parts; an online vision screening course, and a vision screening practicum. At this time, we are not able to organize vision screening events, however you may borrow our vision screening equipment and hold your own vision screening event in your community!

Part 1: Online Vision Screening Course

Part One of the Vision Screening Course can be completed online through Moodle.

Part 2: Vision Screening Practicum

If you would like to gain even more experience, you can host your own vision screening event and complete a practicum report to add to your continuing competence goals.

Read about the vision screening practicum and send in your report after you hold your event.

Please note: Before you take the practicum, you first need to complete the online vision screening course through Moodle.

Cost and Time Commitment

This is a FREE course, that we offer to encourage you to broaden your skill set. Most people are able to complete both sections of the course in a total of 6 hours.
