All of our training workshops have a theory component but focus primarily on practical training, providing our employees with the opportunity to practice the new skills they learn and to trial any new equipment or technology that is available. At the NVC Veterinary Training Centre the courses are conducted in small groups, so participants can receive one on one tuition they need to successfully master new skills.
