How to Choose the Right Online Veterinary CPD
Find your ideal online CPD Solution today in 3 easy steps:-
1 - What would you like to learn?
With the vast range of subjects available online, you need to narrow it down a bit! Would you like to get up to date with infectious diseases in small animals, get better at using ultrasound in your diagnostics or perhaps get key practical tips for carrying out abdominal surgery procedures? Are you on edge with emergency patients or stressed by soft tissue surgery?
Identify your preferred subject area and your level- are you looking for Refresher, GP or Advanced Practitioner Level content?
2 - How interactive do you want to be?
Would you prefer just to be left alone to work through your CPD? Watch whenever and wherever you like, with a full 12 months of unlimited access? Or would you rather get one to one help via discussion forums and interactive case discussions?
There are clear advantages with both of these formats- which would suit you best at the moment?
3 - What time frame do you want to learn over?
If you need a quick knowledge boost, look for online CPD with a lot of instant access content. If you’d prefer a consistent approach over a few weeks, look for a more structured course running over a specific timeframe.
Now you’ve answered these 3 questions for yourself, take a quick look below at how our online courses and memberships can help you find your ideal online CPD Solution…

What Our Customers Say:
"The recordings were particularly useful as I could pause and study the radiographs. I feel much more confident in my interpretive skills."
"This course will help me in practice a great deal - improved confidence in interpretation, more likely to pick up on abnormalities that would previously overlooked."
"Thank you so much, it was a fantastic series, a great combination of the simple and more advanced techniques, so there was something to appeal to everyone- a really great lecturer. It's a nice way to test yourself at the end as well. I will definitely be doing some more of these courses next year!"
"Really practical tips about doing procedures that I had felt were a bit tricky/beyond my ability but I feel confident now that I can perform them properly. Also good coverage of medical knowledge needed for the conditions and useful tips on emerging conditions I hadn't heard of previously. I feel much more competent to perform procedures such as chest drain placement and voiding urohydropulsion that I would not have previously."
"Beyond expectations, and can't believe I haven't done anything like this before! Immeasurably, this will help me in practice to have a more structured approach and feel like I am improving my methods."
"I have really enjoyed the course and found it extremely useful and practical. I have started performing ultrasounds as I feel more confident and it will definitely give me a wider set of tools to help with diagnosing many health problems."
"Another excellent series of seminars. Concise relevant course contents. Excellent X-rays and image reading sessions. It will help me to greatly improve my interpretation of abdominal X-rays."
