Thanks to everyone who offered help. I've been into mygoc and the picture is actually pretty good, I've done everything except the min 6points for this year, seems manageable even with the childcare situation.

Hope you get it sorted, I really feel for anyone this year who’s been trying to juggle home-schooling and work, especially with young children.

Slightly peeved that I can't count my IP hospital placement, as that would cover the points if not all competencies, and it is definitely educational. (If I'm wrong and the placement can be counted, someone tell me!)
Hi FJ,

This is definitely not right.
I just checked my own CET record from many years ago; for some sessions I got 7 points and some 6 (it changed part way through). So the end result was 75-80 points in a few months.
I'm not sure how what you are doing has been set up, but if there is any support for it coming from a non-local direction, I can tell you exactly who to contact - drop me an email to remind me if I forget. (Well, it is my birthday weekend!)

We had a large number of users sign up on march 25th. Was this site mentioned somewhere I'm unaware of?

Could be spambots so I'm reluctant to approve them all. Might stagger it.
You work 20 years paying off a mortgage to a bank who created the money they lent you out of thin air. Debt is the modern day slavery. There is a better way: Watch this Video

The site was mentioned on FB (as a place of slander but all publicity is good publicity?)

Thanks. I do remove slander but I receive very few reports and those that do rarely provide specifics.

The thread where it was suggested you shouldn't vote for a certain AOP councillor. Said councillor posted to say they were saddened to hear they were being spoken of this way on theoptom.com. It was one of the Scottish groups, either Scottish Optometry Group or the NES group.

Well howdy stranger! I spoke to the college who said "nul point" for hospital placement. My local organiser was under the impression there would be points. Who shall I speak to next?
