We award the industry-standard Certificate in Veterinary Practice Management; as well as the Veterinary Practice Administration Certificate for those newer to management or transferring to a veterinary role from another sector.


The Certificate in Veterinary Practice Management is the industry-standard professional examination for veterinary managers.  Covering six key areas, it is available to all members of the VMG who wish to consolidate their knowledge and experience with a recognised qualification.


The Veterinary Practice Administration Certificate is aimed at VMG members who are newer to management, or have come to a veterinary practice role from a different sector.  It is a distance-learning course delivered by Lynwood School of Veterinary Nursing.
