Course Content

The CertNCS(CVC) is structured in two halves. 

The first half of the The CertNCS(CVC) focuses on the principles and practices associated with coaching the Primary Consultation. This half is structured as 3 modules focusing on coaching Clinical resolution, Client satisfaction and Financial resolution. Each of these 3 modules consists of 4 webinars covering the goals and challenges, the mindsets and knowledge, and skills required to achieve each of these outcomes during the primary consultation. Each module is followed by a series of reflective questions exploring how to coach the concepts and principles of the Colourful Consultation approach discussed in the webinars. This section finishes by asking you to complete 5 reflective survey-style case reports relating to your approach and learning journey whilst coaching veterinary colleagues during 5 primary consultations. 

The second half of the CertNCS(CVC) focuses on coaching the concepts and principles associated with the remaining types of veterinary consultations;

  • The follow-up
  • The health check and vaccination (both primary and annual booster)
  • The long-term medical check-up and re-prescription check
  • The euthanasia consultation 

Each section is followed by a series of reflective questions exploring how to coach the concepts and principles discussed in the webinars. This section also requires you to complete 5 reflective survey-style case reports relating to your approach and learning journey whilst coaching veterinary colleagues during each of these four types of consultation. 

There is no time limit on the completion of this course.
