CPD Solutions has launched a new PgCert in small animal dentistry.

The course starts in October 2019 and lasts 12 months. 

The programme is based around nine days of expert-led small group hands-on practical sessions at CPD Solutions' Training Centre near Birmingham, where participants will develop their existing dentistry skills and learn new techniques. 

The company says decision-making is a key focus, as is reflective application of new skills in practice.

CPD Solutions says its PgCerts have unique benefits and differences from other options available, specifically that:

  • its courses have a stronger emphasis on practical training with all attendance sessions of a practical nature, and no lecture days. 

  • its attendance days are grouped into three sessions rather than the more common monthly attendance.

  • its programme runs for 12 months, as opposed to many of the alternatives which run for 2-5 years.

Susie Coughlan, Managing Director at CPD Solutions, said: "Our experience is that vets get the most out of hands-on practical training in a structured and supportive environment, combined with reflective application of their new skills in practice.

"We set out to replicate this with the new PgCert in Small Animal Dentistry – all attendance sessions are practical, and the course provides support for developing reflective work-based learning that vets can then use throughout their careers. The format is in keeping with the RCVS CPD focus on outcomes based learning and critical reflective practice."
