To enhance the quality and reputation of veterinarians through relevant and leading edge CPD

There are many ways to keep up your CPD hours. Whether it's a short course, conference or a workshop - your CPD should equip you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to practise what you've learnt. 

All of our CPD programs focus on quality teaching and direct relevance to practice, and our hands-on wetlabs mean you can master the technique today and begin treating tomorrow.

Graduate Certificates

We're proud to have launched two highly-successful veterinary graduate certificates in 2016:

Our courses are unique, accessible, and clinicailly-focused and have been designed with the latest information technology software. As the courses are delivered online, students will have the flexibility to complete modules in their own time, allowing them to fit study around work. 

Course materials can be accessed through the eLearning Education app on smartphones and tablets with iOS, Android or Windows systems. Once the course materials have been downloaded on smartphones and tablets, all the interactive media content can be viewed even when offline*. Course materials can also be accessed online using a web browser.

* Internet access is required periodically to login or re-verify login credentials.

Who should do these courses?

These courses are ideally suited to veterinarians who:

  • Want to brush up on the topics of Ultrasound and ECC
  • Want to earn a formally recognised qualification from Australia’s number 1 university while keeping up with CPD hours
  • Want to prepare for membership examination with the ANZCVS
  • Want to up-skill or create profit centres within practice

Pressed for time?

We suggest you complete single subjects as a stand-alone CPD and receive a Certificate of Completion. You then have the option of completing the course at a later time. We recommend that if you wish to attain the Graduate Certificate, you complete all subjects in sequence.
