About this course

Please note if you are currently enrolled on the CertAVP A module at the RVC you will have access to this Recorded Webinar Plus course free of charge.

Are you struggling with the CertAVP A module - not sure what it’s about, what relevance it has to your clinical practice or just unclear how to get started?

The A-FAVP module is designed to promote and develop the skills that are intrinsic to the successful veterinary professional and the advanced practitioner – application of an expert body of knowledge, and making decisions in challenging situations. This course is intended to support both of these outcomes.

The most important, and most satisfying way to succeed in the A module at the RVC is to be able to connect the A module skills to the cases and situations you experience in your own veterinary practice. The focus of these four weeks will therefore be on how to apply these concepts to your own professional experience. Help will be given on reflective writing, professional reasoning and decision making, resolution of ethical dilemmas and managing challenging situations. 

Why do this course?
You will build confidence in tackling the essays in the CertAVP A module, starting by building an appreciation of why this module is important to the advanced practitioner.

This course last ran in November 2019 and contains all of the learning material (webinars, reading material, slides, self assessment exercises) from then, but is not tutor moderated. Please note there are no FAQ's for this recorded webinar plus course.

You have four weeks in which to view your Recorded Webinar Plus course. Courses can be purchased in advance and activated as and when you are ready to start. Your four weeks will start from the point of activation. When you have finished the course you may request a CPD certificate.
