OCQ(V) - Cymorth – TB
This training course, which has been paid for by the Welsh Government and developed in conjunction with APHA, prepares Official Vets (OVs) to deliver Cymorth TB, which provides advice, support and bespoke veterinary interventions for Welsh herd keepers affected by bovine TB.
The Cymorth TB veterinary programme seeks to provide private veterinarians with the information and training they require to deliver a high quality, herd health focussed, disease management farm visit. The visit includes the TB disease management process; farm/herd biosecurity; and informed purchasing - amongst other issues. Candidates undertaking this module must already hold OCQ (V) – ES Essential Skills and OCQ(V) - Tuberculin Testing.
All the training and assessment is completed online after registering via your personal training dashboard.
The Welsh Government has a number of subsidised places, those who are eligible for the subsidised places should contact the TB Team at Welsh Government and will be given a code to enter as 'payment'. Any queries about the subsidised places please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to do certain Cymorth related work for the Welsh Government, and others, it will be necessary to hold this qualification.
