Professional Certificate in Glaucoma

Did you know that you can use the LOCSU glaucoma module towards a Professional Certificate in Glaucoma?

You have already taken the first step by completing your LOCSU training course and we can support your education further.

We offer a 10 credit module (Glaucoma 1, OPT010) that together with the LOSCU  module is accredited for the Certificate in Glaucoma which is endorsed by the College of Optometrists. This would enable you to use Prof Cert Glauc after your name. 

Holding a formal qualification will demonstrate your commitment to caring for people with glaucoma and enable patients, ophthalmologists and GPs to be aware of your special interest in this area of practice.

Glaucoma Level 1 builds on from the Foundation to facilitate knowledge and understanding in IOP measurement and interpretation.  There are 10 CET points available for the module and the cost in the next academic year is £575, which is similar to the CET grant.

We are accepting admissions now for the next start date of September 2017. To find out more please email us at pgoptom@cardiff.ac.uk or call us on 029 2087 6316.

NB This only applies for 3 years after you complete the LOCSU glaucoma.
