Cattle Focus

Support large animal CPD

If you work in large animal or mixed practice, we have a range of CPD coming up over the next 6 months that caters for vets with differing needs in terms of level of commitment and time. There’s literally something for everyone.

Struggling to manage work and life balance, but still keen for a mental refresher if you can fit it in around all your other commitments?

Then our PodcastPLUS is ideal for you. Free to CVE Members (but very reasonably priced for non-Members at $60) this is short, sharp but highly informative CPD led by one of Australia’s foremost authorities.

1 hour of your time = 1 CPD point plus the chance to engage in the chat forum with your colleagues.

Keen on the podcast, but also looking for a more intense learning experience that is conducted in a short, defined timeframe? 

Then our TimeOnline courses are ideal. Short (4 weeks) and manageable (10 hours), they are ideal for vets constrained by time and finances or vets who prefer to suit their continuing education around their own personal timetable, and not the other way around.

Not only do you have the opportunity to learn from some highly renowned and respected educators, you will find that you learn plenty from your colleagues, too, through the online forums.

Distance Education is not for the faint-hearted. It’s challenging and time-consuming but ultimately extremely rewarding both personally and professionally. It requires a high level of commitment but the rewards in terms of self-satisfaction and increasing your skills in the marketplace are immeasurable.
