Our most comprehensive training program is the Tri-Service Vision Conservation and Readiness Course (TSVCRC). Taught as a combination of an online portion and a live portion, this course covers all elements of a Vision Conservation and Readiness Program (VCRP). Instruction concentrates on regulatory requirements and recommended practices to establish or enhance an installation vision conservation and readiness program. The “team” aspect of coordinating safety, occupational health, industrial hygiene, and optometry personnel is emphasized. Personnel completing this course may be able to receive Continuing Education credit.
