How the Course Works


27 hours CPD per Vet


The course is designed to be delivered in the convenience of your own practice, complete with your very own ultrasound equipment, on a day that works best for you. 

  • Teaching on¬†your specific machine¬†(learn all the quirks specific to the machine you have to work with!)
  • Learn exactly what you want/need - Do you see many emergencies? Want to learn the basics? Want to get to grips with the pancreas and adrenals? Learn Basic echocardiography views? The day is tailored to your needs.
  • The course will fit around the practice‚Äôs¬†requirements for the day¬† - do you need to do a few consults in the morning before we start? Do you want to finish early - let me know!¬†
  • Ideal for 3 to 6 vets.¬† If there are more than that we may need to split the course over multiple days.
  • Access to¬†IVALA learn¬†for the duration of the online course worth ¬£59.99/year

Each vet will receive 7 hours of practical CPD as well as 20 hours of online CPD to consolidate the learning with one of these online courses:

Camilla is a great teacher... She is also lovely, and friendly - I didn't feel I was being judged on my lack of skills! The training was all very practical and within the first hour I already knew so much more than when I started! It was great to learn on our own machine and I am looking forward to putting the knowledge to good use. Highly recommended.

A Happy Customer

Caroline thank you for sparking our enthusiasm with ultrasonography and for giving us the confidence to reconnect with our ultrasound machine to benefit our patients. I really enjoyed the session, thank you.
