Frequently Asked Questions
Does the course count towards CPD credits?
Yes. The course has been awarded 37.5 IVAS credits and the whole course qualifies for IVCA credits. Attendance certificates will be provided.
I see the course is being run at 2 locations. Will I need my own transport to move between venues?
Ideally. Wherever possible we will share cars but moving between the accommodation and the teaching venues is your responsibility.
Do I have to be a vet to come on the course?
The course is primarily presented as CPD for equine vets and professionally qualified chiropractors. All participants must have professional indemnity cover. Other equine professionals are welcome as observers but will not be able to perform acupuncture or chiropractic treatments on the horses.
Can I bring a horse for assessment and treatment?
Yes. If you are local and have a suitable horse or pony and are able to transport it to either of the venues, please contact Sue Devereux.
Is it possible to attend just part of the course?
Attendance at the lectures is necessary to participate in the practical sessions. A small number of additional places for days 1 and 2 only will be made available to equine professionals who are not vets or chiropractors.
What meals will be provided?
Coffee and tea will be available at registration and at intervals throughout the day. Lunch will be provided each day with a roast Sunday lunch in a traditional English country pub on June 1st. There will be a dinner at The Boot Inn, Houghton on the evening of Saturday 31st May, otherwise evening meals are not included.
Please indicate any specific dietary requests on the Registration Form.
