About the course

Originally a 2 day attended course this course has been reworked into 2 modules to be more accessible to all. Whilst still having 2 days worth of content, there is only 1 live day. Module 1 is a full day’s worth of pre-learning and completion of this module is required prior to attending the online live meeting. The material will be made available 2 weeks prior to the live meeting date and it is strongly advised that delegates schedule enough time into their working day to complete this in the 2 weeks prior to the live day.

Please note that although this course is available, delegates MUST attend the live meeting, in full, to satisfy the requirements of the exam. Watching the live recording is not sufficient. Attendance at the live meeting will be monitored for the duration of the meeting. Delegates cannot sit the BAEDT/BEVA exam without completing this course. Only one course is available.

Vets can attend the live discussion only

If you are a BEVA member and registered vet looking to refresh your knowledge in equine dentistry, then you can book to attend the live discussion only. Book here.
