With less than two weeks left before the first event begins in Perth, now is your last chance to enter the draw to win one of 20 free passes to the Specsavers Dispensing Conference (SDC3).

SDC3 will take place from 4 to 9 August 2019 as a one-day, roadshow-style event held in Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. Open to all qualified optical dispensers – both Specsavers and non-Specsavers – and optical dispensing students, the conference will feature practical and theoretical workshops presented by experts in the field.

The conference presents an excellent opportunity for qualified dispensers to challenge and extend their knowledge by hearing from international speakers such as Professor Mo Jalie, author of the core dispensing text, Principles of Ophthalmic Lenses.

For students completing Certificate IV in Optical Dispensing (Cert IV), SDC3 offers a glimpse of what lies ahead in the dispensing journey, and the advanced skills and additional professional development options available after Cert IV.

For all delegates, the event is a chance to speak face-to-face with local and international industry experts and network with those at the forefront of dispensing advancement.

The full speaker line-up and their presentations are listed below:
