We offer training that enables an animal medicine advisor to prescribe and supply animal medicines for Companion Animals according to the UK’s legal requirements.
Working with AMTRA, the independent regulator that keeps a register of Suitably Qualified Persons (SQPs), we offer the Base and Companion Animal (Level 4) modules leading to the C-SQP qualification.
You need some basic literacy and numeracy skills as well as some basic knowledge of animal care.
You should be aged 18 years or over.
Companion Animal Module
Exams and viva for both modules must be booked through AMTRA. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01359 245801
Learners must enrol directly with AMTRA before booking a training course at Derby College. Registration and examination fees are paid directly to AMTRA. The fee paid to AMTRA will cover provision of a training manual and the examination.
The fees detailed under costs are for tuition of the exam content only and are paid to Derby College.
Following successful completion of these modules, the learner will be able to apply knowledge from areas as diverse as legislation, animal physiology and internal/external parasites of companion animals to the animal medicines and pet industry.
A mature student has praised a part-time Derby College course which allowed her to change career direction and launch the thriving business of her dreams.
Former dog warden Zoe Longdon, 43, said she gained essential support, skills and confidence at Broomfield Hall, while working for her City and Guilds Level 2 certificate in Dog Grooming.
Now Zoe is putting her knowledge into practice by running her own mobile dog grooming service called “Rovers Return”, from Newthorpe, Eastwood, Nottinghamshire.
She said level of training provided by lecturer Sue Oliver was above that which can be expected at Level 2 – and the course offered good value for money in comparison to the privately run equivalents she researched.
