Qualifications you can trust

As our industry becomes increasingly regulated it is vital that you are able to identify and choose appropriate qualifications. But how do you know which qualifications to choose?

To be sure that the course you are hoping to undertake is recognised as a genuine qualification, you should look for a regulated qualification. This ensures that the qualification you undertake has been appropriately scrutinised, and has been confirmed at the correct level.

A regulated qualification will be listed on the RQF, the Regulated Qualification Framework.

The Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF) accredits qualifications in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The RQF is regulated by Ofqual (the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation), by the Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) and by the Credit and Qualification Framework.

Regulated qualifications are awarded through Regulated Awarding Organisations and delivered by their approved training providers. We are an approved training provider of the award winning, Ofqual approved awarding organisation, iPET Network.

Certificates, diplomas, awards, whatever title a course has, may not be formally recognised qualification unless they are listed on the RQF. Always look for the Ofqual number and the RQF listing.

Our industry is moving increasingly towards regulation, which is good thing. Regulation exists to ensure the standards and quality of education and training, of practitioners, and the safety and welfare of animals and their owners.

Industry regulation is often delivered via Industry Regulating Bodies (IRB). RAMP, the Register of Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners, has been recognised by DRERA as an IRB for our industry.

Our courses are recognised and accredited by RAMP.
