Training of staff and managers is at the heart of ensuring the best can be gained from the pigs on any farm. This has been a major part of the ethos of Bishopton Veterinary Group’s Pig Department for decades and has been appreciated by many of our clients for a lot longer.
Along with running our own courses for clients, both in workshop and practical on farm situations, we also provide bespoke training courses for other clients and companies. All of our Pig Department vets are Train the Trainer approved, and most are also full Lantra Award Trainers. This ensures our courses are all delivered to a consistently high standard by people who understand how to get the important information across.
Bishopton Pig Department developed the FarmSkills Pig courses as part of XLVets Training, meaning that the resulting courses are nationally consistent for the whole of the UK with regards to learning outcomes. All our courses are PIPR registered, and we also have a full range of modules that can assist staff members who are studying for their Certificates of Competence, both level 2 & 3.
