General Practitioner CertificatesThe ISVPS GPCert is a middle-tier qualification awarded to veterinary surgeons who successfully pass our assessments following the completion of a dedicated modular training programme accredited by us. This ensures that you are provided with the highest quality of appropriate practical and clinically relevant training to prepare you for undertaking the GPCert assessments. Only registered veterinary surgeons who have been qualified for a minimum of one year can apply to undertake a General Practitioner Certificate.
General Practitioner Advanced CertificatesThe General Practitioner Advanced Certificate has been developed for Veterinary professionals who wish to advance their knowledge, progress their academic qualifications and gain recognition in their field. In partnership with Improve International, Scivac and Harper Adams University the GPAdvCert programme is designed for veterinary surgeons who have already completed a General Practitioner Certificate (GPCert) or Postgraduate Certificate (Pgc) and wish the deepen their knowledge.
To be eligible to sit the Nurses Certificate examination, candidates must complete the ISVPS accredited course of study with Improve International. In addition to the taught modular programme, candidates are required to complete further study in their own time as well as submitting various pieces of course work and sitting a final written examination. Please refer to the individual subject for further information.
