New SQP regulator, Vetpol has announced it will soon open for SQP training.
It follows full approval by the Veterinary Medicines Directorate for Vetpol to become a regulator.
The all-new course is delivered online, using a bespoke learning management platform and an integrated CPD system, resulting in busy professionals and those in rural communities can easily access the course and study at a time and place that suits them.
The Vetpol course has been designed to deliver a positive experience for its users, as SQP training is acknowledged to be challenging, with a lot of information to assimilate across a broad subject area. It uses the principles of reflective learning, with simple exercises to complete to help embed what is learned and highlighting of key facts to aid recall.
Caroline Johnson, Vetpol founder and director said: “There is an increasing number of NFA-VPS medicines available alongside POM-VPS medicines and a growing need to broaden knowledge of companion animals, which we have reflected in the course content.
“In agriculture too, it has never been more challenging to deliver the kind of service that farmers and stock-keepers need in the 21st century – we have looked at this both from the farmer and outlet’s point of view and we have really addressed health and disease with this in mind.”
The course writers have aimed to make sure the course contains information that is relevant, practical and necessary, building on a solid base of animal welfare and husbandry. Regular updates are also built into the schedule to ensure the course reflects current thinking and keeps pace with changes in medicines legislation.
