Half price CPD for BEVA for members

Thanks to some generous subsidies, the British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA) has managed to reduce the fees its members pay for CPD courses to 50% this year and to make its webinars free to members.

BEVA is renowned for the excellence of its CPD programmes, not only for the calibre and expertise of the speakers but also for the practical application of the courses. The broad range of topics is aimed at busy vets who need to build CPD points, whether new graduates, equine or mixed practitioners. 

“Last year we were able to capitalise on some efficiencies in other areas of BEVA operations, said David Mountford, Chief Executive of BEVA. “We are delighted to be able to hand the resulting benefits directly back to our members across all our CPD programme during 2013.”

BEVA’s comprehensive CPD programme is improved each year in response to the needs of the delegates and takes the form of clinical workshops, regional meetings, nursing meetings, webinars and one, two and three day practical courses, held in the UK.
