The WCEA has entered into a partnership agreement with the WCO to create a global network of continuing education courses.

The network of courses is accessed by organizations around the world who can select the courses that they would like for their eyecare professionals/members.

WCO member organizations receive special terms if they use the WCEA’s Learning Management Systems to access the education content, and associations can also share education with each other through the network.

An important focus of the initiative is to distribute education to eyecare professionals in developing regions.  When educators charge for their education the are requested to offer their education to eyecare professionals living in developing regions for free.
