Education and training

We offer a wide range of e-learning and Continuing Personal Development (CPD) courses for people working in agriculture, aquaculture and the veterinary profession.

In response to industry demand, our selection of courses is growing to cover key industry issues such as sea lice control in salmon and sustainable livestock management. We have partnered with Russell Group universities, St Andrews and Reading to deliver courses for undergraduate students up to MSc level.

We also offer face-to-face Continuing Professional Development courses, providing training and skills development for veterinarians and people working in agriculture, aquaculture and the companion animal industry.

Conferences provide access to a wide-ranging client base, opportunities for community development and networking, and marketing for products and services. No other event provides such direct access to buyers and suppliers from around the globe.
