Important Colourful CPD, BVRA and AVACA news!!

Brian Faulkner & Kay Watson-Bray co-founded Colourful CPD and BVRA in 2017, and later AVACA in 2021.

Having just celebrated 5 years as established organisations, it is now time for BVRA, AVACA and Colourful CPD to operate as entirely independent organisations in terms of their ownership, staffing, and IT platforms.

BVRA & AVACA are now owned and run entirely by Kay Watson-Bray, and Colourful CPD is now owned entirely by Brian Faulkner and run by Sophie Lo Curto.  Brian and Sophie no longer have any involvement with BVRA & AVACA.

Although Colourful CPD owns the Accredited Veterinary Receptionist Award and Veterinary Animal Care Assistant Award, the Bronze level of these awards will continue to be available as BVRA / AVACA membership benefits, or via the Colourful CPD website for non-members. All purchases of the Silver and Gold levels of these courses will now only be available via the Colourful CPD website.  New and existing BVRA / AVACA members will be re-directed to the Colourful CPD hub upon login to access their courses. EDIT FEBRUARY 2023: Due to the BVRA & AVACA’s decision to operate independently of us, these courses are no longer free to BVRA/AVACA members. Please click here for further information.
