Since qualified Veterinary Nurses already have been assessed on some of the relevant material in this qualification they can be given credit for this and just have to be assessed on the “new” material and the working understanding of their other knowledge checked. More information for Veterinary Nurses…
Non-qualified nurses and other veterinary practice staff can also become SQPs but they will have to enrol as a new student via the normal route as for other candidate SQPs.
The enrolment fee includes:
It will be necessary to sit the exam within 24 months of enrolment otherwise AMTRA will charge a supplementary fee.
We will send by courier a printed manual for you to study with the appropriate modules depending on which species groups you have selected at enrolment.
You will also, separately, receive from Harper Adams University details of how to access an online version of the training manual, including your individual password. If you lose this or have difficulties accessing the online system, please contact Harper Adams: Telephone: +44 (0)1952 815008, email: [email protected]
Home study from the printed manual and the online system may be supplemented in some cases by training provided by your employer.
To supplement the printed training manual, most students find it highly advantageous to undertake a taught course provided by a specialist educational centre or trainer and a list of these courses is available on the AMTRA website.
It is up to you whether to attend a course: the training centre will charge a fee for this. Courses should be booked directly with the training centre.
