SQP External Trainers

Online is the most convenient way to learn and gain your SQP qualification. And to get across the finish line faster, many companies employ SQP external trainers to support their SQP students with their studies and exam preparation. That’s because face-to-face coaching, alone or in groups, can help with revision and speed up the learning process.

It’s also hugely beneficial to gain practical experience on farms, stables or vet practices to help you appreciate the real-life situations where you may be called upon to give advice. Some external SQP trainers offer farm walks or mentored support to expand your skills in this area.

Vetpol is pleased to introduce you to some highly experienced people in the sector to help you learn, revise and pass your SQP exams. These trainers work independent of Vetpol but we’re pleased to help you locate them and make contact to discuss your specific requirements.

Please speak directly with the external trainers listed below to find out what they have to offer and how their services benefit you and your team.
