This certificate is appropriate to those who have worked in the veterinary profession before and are now moving into management or those who have worked as a manager outside of the veterinary profession and now work within veterinary practice.
It provides a grounding in the legal, theoretical and procedural skills that are required to really understand and manage a veterinary practice. Please be aware that this is not a generic management course marketed as a course in Veterinary Practice Management. If a veterinary practice management course doesn't discuss the Laws and Regulations that govern the veterinary profession and how they impact day-to-day operational systems….it isn't really a course on 'Veterinary' Practice Management. It is just a business course that covers the standard fair of Marketing, HR, Finance & Accounts etc. See further information below about what is covered in this course to help you understand the difference.
This course examines your understanding of the content and on completion you will be entitled to use the post-nominals CertNCS(VPM).
You will work through each module at your own pace and at the end of each module, you submit it for marking by our external examiner. It equates to 50 hours of CPD and on completion you will receive an official certificate of achievement via post.
