Veterinary Client Care Non-Clinical Skills Certificate: CertNCS(VCC) - Companion Animal

Where the Core Standard Award in Veterinary Client Care explored the scope of customer service areas that every practice should consider and master, the Certificate in Veterinary Client Care helps CCA's apply these principles within their own practice protocols.  

The Certificate in Veterinary Client Care can only be completed once the Veterinary Client Care Core Standards course has been completed. 

On completion of this course, you will be able to download a customised quick reference guide containing your Q&A's.

What Our Clients Say

I thoroughly enjoyed the Silver level of Colourful CPD's Accredited Veterinary Receptionist award! It has taught me so many things that I did not previously have knowledge in and it has inspired me to want to educate myself further in certain topics. It brought to my attention how much value is within our healthcare plans and now we proactively share this information with our clients so that they can see the benefits too. In addition, it has also highlighted some areas for development within our practice and its protocols and I look forward to working alongside my team in order to make improvements.
