CPD approval of events

Events approved for CPD purposes should serve to maintain or enhance the knowledge, skills, personal and professional performance of all ophthalmologists’ doctors who take part in them. They should meet an educational need and provide an effective learning experience.

Fees are charged for CPD approval of meetings run by commercial (for-profit) organisations. Please contact [email protected] for information.

If you wish to apply for CPD points for a meeting/course please read the Guidance for CPD Approval and complete the CPD Application Form for approval. A programme for the CPD event must be submitted with the approval form to [email protected].

Please note that the College requires 8 weeks’ notice before the meeting is due to take place.

The fees charged for the CPD approval of meetings run by commercial (for profit) organisations increased to £300 plus VAT on 1 January 2020.  A fee of £350 plus VAT will be charged for all applications made less than two weeks before the event is due to run.

Approved events may run multiple times over a 12-month period without further applications providing that the content, speakers and hours of educational content remain the same as stipulated in the original application.
