Areas of study

In 2017, CPD solutions began offering University-validated postgraduate certificate programmes for vets and became a UCLan Partner in 2023, working with the new School of Veterinary Medicine to develop the innovative PgCert in Small Animal Soft Tissue Surgery – the first of its kind in the UK.

CPD Solutions PgCert programmes enable vets to achieve their PgCert in 12 months with an emphasis on small group hands-on training blended with online learning and reflective practice. Small group practical attendance courses provide knowledge and expertise from their approachable specialist tutors and are the best way to develop clinical skills and confidence.


Practical teaching takes place at their dedicated Training Centre in Studley, Warwickshire, which has been fully refurbished to provide delegates with an enhanced learning experience. The Practical Room features a state-of-the-art camera system and fully adjustable operating tables with individual theatre lights.
