Choose Vetpol for Online SQP Training
Vetpol courses are written by vets in plain English. They help you become a qualified SQP capable of delivering great customer service. With up to date information and tips that help you give the right advice, what you learn in our courses is easy to apply to your normal working life.
Learning should be fun – so we have mini exercises to help embed your learning and key facts to remember. And in today’s busy world, learning needs to be flexible too. Flexible enough to be fitted into any free periods in the day, wherever you are, helping you to maximise time management and productivity.
Need to squeeze some revision into a coffee break or between customers? It’s easy to dip in and out of our learning platform. Modules are divided into bite-sized sections to make learning easier. You can even test learning as you go with our self-assessment quizzes.
“I’m enjoying the course: The materials are nicely put together and I particularly appreciate having the flexibility to fit this training around my university degree and other commitments”
Vetpol SQP student, January 2021
“Good course content and Caroline was very helpful”
Lauren Eaton SQP-CF, Broughton Veterinary Group
“When asked about the quality, convenience, clarity and likelihood of recommendation of training materials, students rated the Vetpol SQP course a whopping 92.4% (all results aggregated and averaged)! Of course that means there is still room for improvement and that is exactly what we are working on!”
Debbie Collins, Customer Care Manager
Choose Vetpol for Online SQP Exams
It’s a fact that most people find exams stressful. Travelling to exam centres only adds to the problem, especially if you live in a rural location or have family commitments that make time away from the area difficult. So we have been keen to offer a solution that minimises hassle, allowing students to put all their energy and focus into gaining their qualification.
The answer is online proctored exams.
STOP PRESS: Vetpol exams are online proctored which is a first for the SQP sector. This means students can sit exams at home or their place of work – in fact, anywhere with a good internet connection.
No more exam centres, travel and additional stress. Great news!
How does it work? All you need is a quiet place to sit and a good internet connection, as you’ll be invigilated remotely. It really is that simple.
Choose Vetpol for Unparalleled Support
As part of the Vetpol community, you need never feel alone. Throughout your studies you have access to a SQP forum where you can network with your peers and ask questions. Often the best help comes from people going through similar challenges to the ones you are faced with.
Via the forum you also have access to resources that specifically help SQPs perform their role; students find these resources useful too as many will elevate understanding and assist learning.
The Vetpol team are always on hand should you have a question to ask or feel some guidance is required.
Likewise, should you require the expertise of an external SQP trainer to accelerate your studies, we will point you in the right direction.
When it comes to support we’ve covered all the bases.
Choose Vetpol for better recognition of the SQP qualification
We don’t stop supporting you when you become qualified either.
You’ve worked hard to earn SQP status and deserve professional recognition – yet today, few members of the general public know what a SQP is, nor what they do. This is something Vetpol recognises and wishes to address.
We do this through the use of powerful trademarks that signpost veterinary medicines and the person with the expertise to advise and dispense them. Having a clear, visual link between products and qualified experts gives SQPs the professional recognition they deserve and need to fulfil their roles.
We are working to build a future where the hard work, knowledge and expertise of all SQPs is recognised and valued by animal owners and the businesses that employ them. SQPs deserve nothing less.
SQP Qualification and Beyond…
Having achieved qualification, SQPs must be registered with a professional regulator such as Vetpol, in order to be allowed to practice as a SQP. You will find more information about this on the Vetpol Register page.
