CVPM exams 2020 to be held online

We’ve been closely following updates to restrictions and government advice over recent weeks, and considering how this will affect the running of the Certificate in Veterinary Practice Management examinations this year.

The VMG Certification and Training Committee met last week and have agreed that, in light of current uncertainty and with the safety of both candidates and examiners in mind, we will be running this year’s CVPM exam online.

The requirements and dates will remain the same.  The presentation topic will be released on 9th October, the fictional practice details will be released on 23rd October, and exams will take place on 6th November as planned.

All of this year’s candidates have been informed of the arrangements.  We are sorry not to get the chance to meet them in person and celebrate their successes with them; however the 2020 exam will reflect the reality of current practice life, with online meetings and virtual handshakes until we can gather safely.

The VMG Certificate in Veterinary Practice Management is the industry standard qualification awarded to those who can demonstrate their ability to effectively manage any veterinary practice and work under pressure.  It is aimed at those with senior responsibility in their workplace; those who are newer to management or supervisory/team leading roles might prefer to take the Veterinary Practice Administration Certificate in the first instance.

This is the last year that we are running the existing CVPM.  To register your interest in joining the new format 2021 cohort, please just drop an email to
