AMTRA SQPs have an opportunity to top up their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points next summer, as AMTRA and AHDA announce the dates for the 2019 CPD roadshow.
Taking place from May until the end of June 2019, the CPD roadshow will take in 12 venues across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Stephen Dawson, AMTRA’s secretary general, said: “We are now well in to the second half of the CPD period, and AMTRA SQPs will be required to obtain their minimum requirement of CPD points ahead of the deadline of June 30, 2019.
“The last of the roadshow events takes place on June 26, meaning those still needing to secure their last CPD points, can still do so by participating in any of the 12 events most convenient for them.”
Mr Dawson said the 2018 roadshow programme was well received, with attendees commenting on the informative and relevant content, presented by high-level, enthusiastic speakers.
“It also acts as a handy refresher, and there are plenty of tips on communicating with the public,” he said. “The format is kept as interactive as possible, involving and including all participants.”
The programme will be split into two sections, one for companion animal/general and the other focusing on farm animals. The companion animal section will look at ectoparasites in dogs and cats, rabbit care and enhancing the professional prescriber role. The farm animal element will concentrate on liver fluke, poultry and sheep wormer resistance.
