Continuing professional development

AVA members receive substantial discounts to continuing professional development events organised by the association. We have also negotiated valuable discounts for online continuing professional development courses provided by VetLearn.

Insurance

AVA members receive a premium reduction for professional indemnity insurance provided through Guild Insurance.  For proprietors the reduction is approximately 25%, and for non-proprietors this can be as high as 50%.
