portals, webinars, and videos…it’s never been easier to access free, on-demand training and education. Two more opportunities are now available for O.D.s, opticians, and optical staff.

Shamir Insight, Inc., has launched an online education portal that provides free training for eyecare professionals. An offering of 21 Shamir-developed self-guided presentations covers topics ranging from practice management, optics, and managed care to new technology and Shamir products.

The portal also offers, in conjunction with Quantum Optical (and for a small fee), access to more than 90 courses for CE credits, including four COPE courses. Shamir is also working on developing a portal for labs with the same idea in mind, which it says will be released soon.
