Welcome to AMTRA

AMTRA is a not-for-profit organisation, working since 1986 to support the long term future of the sector, managing the registration for 7000 AMTRA RAMAs (Registered Animal Medicines Advisors / SQPs).

AMTRA is appointed by the Secretary of State to keep its Register of RAMAs (SQPs), which brings associated responsibilities including an effective disciplinary process to take action in the case of anyone not following the SQP Code of Practice, together with a mandatory system of CPD.

Additionally, AMTRA undertakes a number of other activities to support AMTRA RAMAs, helping to support and enhance the quality of AMTRA RAMAs, the service they provide to animal owners, and supporting their long-term future.

Exams update

  • AMTRA/Harper Adams exams are now suspended again until further notice, at least until the end of 2020.
  • A number of Covid-secure exams took place from August to October and went well, but in view of the evolving situation, including movement restrictions and the uncertainty as to what the future holds in terms of Covid risk itself, and associated Government restrictions, exams have now been suspended.
  • Changes to enforcement on remote prescribing and supply, and on temporary premises, were in place until 31 August, when they ceased with more normal enforcement activity now in place.
  • No extension to the CPD deadline is foreseen

CPD available to all RAMAs

Where asked to do so by the CPD organiser, AMTRA will publish on its website information on accredited CPD available to RAMAs (but a lot of CPD is publicised by other means). See theĀ CPD open to all RAMAs.
