SVMA Licensing Course has changed
After much thought and reflection, it has been decided to make changes to the licensing seminar and exam. An overhaul of the licensing seminar presentations and exam question bank has occurred this year. The course now covers big picture information about being a self regulatory body, the range of legislation we must abide by, how the complaints process works, how practice inspection works and VCPR. This fall, at the November licensing seminar the presentations were video recorded.
That brings us to the big news: we now have a 4-hour licensing course ONLINE, with four videos to watch and the exam to complete. The in-person licensing seminars are being discontinued.
New members must complete the new online licensing course within 30 days of their approval. This will ensure that new members are receiving the information they need prior to (or shortly after) beginning working in Saskatchewan. Previously some people were having to wait for nearly a year before attending a seminar. This also results in less travel, less work time missed and less expense to new members due to the flexibility of doing this online from the comfort of their home or clinic.
This course is also approved as a 4 hour Continuing Education course that is available to ALL existing SVMA members for a cost of $75, through self-enrollment in the Online Classroom. Please note that if you enrol in this course, you will only have 30 days to complete it.
This course is a great opportunity for any SK veterinarians or vet techs to refresh your knowledge about the regulation of veterinary medicine in Saskatchewan.
