In one of the biggest giveaways in veterinary history, The Webinar Vet and Bought By Many pet insurance have partnered to gift 110,000 hours of CPD (continued professional development) training to veterinary nurses and students around the UK, united in the belief that all vet nurses are heroes and the cornerstone of any veterinary team.

Veterinary nurses are required to complete 11 hours of CPD training per year but due to travel and lockdown restrictions caused by the the Coronavirus pandemic, many nurses have been unable to complete their training plans. The partnership between the Webinar Vet and Bought By Many will offer vet nurses the opportunity to access online, curated training programs for free, removing the financial burden typically associated with CPD training, as a way to celebrate the amazing work and contribution vet nurses bring to the veterinary industry.

Speaking about the partnership Anthony Chadwick, founder of The Webinar Vet said: “I am delighted to be partnering with Bought by Many in providing 10,000 CPD packages for nurses and student nurses. Since starting The Webinar Vet in 2010, it's been my objective to provide high quality training to vets and nurses to make them more confident in their place of work. It's amazing to see Bought by Many step up at this challenging time to provide such a generous gift to my nursing colleagues. I am very grateful on their behalf.”

Steven Mendel, CEO and Co-founder of Bought By Many, commented: “Our mission is to improve pet insurance and to help owners access high-quality treatment for their pets. An important part of that includes working closely with the veterinary community to ensure they feel supported to provide the best care available for the nation’s pets. We are proud to support vet nurses with their professional development because we recognise the vital work they do as part of the veterinary care ecosystem to keep our pets healthy and happy.“

Sarah James, Qualified Veterinary Nurse and Bought By Many’s Vet Relationship & Technical Claims Manager, commented: “As a former vet nurse, I know the huge importance of CPD. But I also know how difficult it is to find time to study. This online course solves that problem, and at zero cost to nurses, the traditional barriers to professional development are completely removed.”

Registrants will receive access to 11 hours of CPD content especially chosen and curated for veterinary nurses that they’ll be able to watch from any connected device, on demand.

Veterinary nurses simply need to register their interest to receive the free training.
