Our Continuing Competence Program is changing! The new CCP says goodbye to credits and hello to focused learning. You will have more freedom to create individualized learning plans that benefit you and your patients!
Step 1: Take the online assessments
These multiple-choice questions about the national competencies for opticians will help you pinpoint areas in your education that could use improvement. The assessments are not graded tests, they are tools to help you focus your learning.
Step 2: Build 6 learning plans
Instead of taking random courses that get you the number of credits you need, you’ll be able to get the most out of your con-ed by building learning plans that address areas the assessments flag as needing improvement. You’ll be able to choose from a list of courses already assigned to the competencies, or create a custom plan that includes relevant volunteerism, self-directed study, group projects, and more. The online tools will help you with guided questions and drop-down menus to customize your learning plans.
Step 3: Complete educational activities
After you build your learning plans, it’s time to meet your goals. Set yourself deadlines to help you stay on track. When you complete the educational activities and guided self-reflection for a learning plan, you can mark it as complete. You need to mark all 6 learning plans as complete before the end of your 3-year cycle.
