Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Consulting: CertNCS(AVC)

Why do this course

Do you or a colleague want to obtain formal recognition of your consulting skills and acquire further professional post-nominals? Colourful CPD recognise that veterinary consulting and communication skills are crucial areas of veterinary practice that should be developed and recognised. This is now possible via Colourful CPD’s Non-Clinical Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Consulting, which is the only certified qualification in the world that provides formal recognition in veterinary consulting and communication skills.

What's in it for me

The qualification is based upon Colourful CPD’s Colourful Consultation model which incorporates a problem-solving approach to clinical reasoning and resolution within a consensus-based approach to decision-making. The course material is presented as 2 halves. The first half focuses on the theory, principles and practices relating to the clinical, client, financial challenges that are part and parcel of all veterinary consultations. The second half of the course applies these principles and practices specifically to each of the five most common consultations; the primary consultation, the follow-up re-check consultation, the long-term / ongoing medical / re-prescription case-consultation, the vaccination consultations (primary and annual) and the euthanasia consultation. Each of these consultations has specific challenges and considerations. The course is delivered as a blend of webinars, online material, reflective questions and case logs. The ‘final exam’ takes the form of a live-viva.

Achievement of this qualification will recognise your ability to prevent and resolve a spectrum of challenges associated with communicating complex and often uncertain issues during veterinary-client interactions. Not only will you find that your own clinical reasoning has improved, you will find that your clients understand your explanations and proposals better. This will result in better uptake of proactive preventative and therapeutic proposals, better client satisfaction and increased financial productivity. You will also gain a deeper sense of inner self-confidence as well as the recognised esteem associated the acquisition of the post-nominals CertNCS(AVC).

Course Reviews

"I generally have significant antipathy towards the self-help / self-improvement movement. I find most of the content is common sense and unlikely to be life changing. So it was with some scepticism that I watched the Vet Whisperer course. I have to say, it was fantastic. The evidence based approach to an analysis of behaviour was terrific and would appeal to most scientific minds. The fact it specifically relates to veterinary practice was a big plus, rather than a generic one varnished with a vet clinic top coat."
"Very well-spoken and put together videos. Highly recommend this course as it tackles some of the everyday issues dealt with in practice and gives useful advice on how to overcome these. Everyday practice goes beyond books and it is nice to know there is information out there covering an important aspect of this job. Looking forward to more videos."
