Vet CPD Online Tutored Courses take approximately 8 hours to complete and can be completed at your own pace and at any time over the course’s 3-week period. There are webinars to watchdownloadable course notes and cases to work through, plus – what makes our courses unique – a busy clinical forum where questions and answers are posted and where delegates have access to the instructor for the duration of the course. This always generates lively discussions and the idea that no one should leave a course with any unanswered questions. At the end of the course there is a final exam plus a Certificate of Completion for your CPD records.

All our Tutored Online CPD Courses are written and taught by an expert in the relevant field. The tutor for this course is: Ian Wright BVMS BSc MSc MRCVS
