The course is delivered using our dedicated online learning management platform. As long as participants have an internet connection and a device such as a laptop or tablet, the course content can be accessed anytime, anywhere. This online learning also facilitates classroom interactions such as a discussion board with course mates whilst maintaining security and privacy unlike a forum.
We understand that students and professionals in the veterinary, animal management and life sciences fields have other priorities and limited time for extra training. We've therefore developed this course as an adjunct to existing studies and/or employment which can be studied in free time so that time constraints are not a barrier to developing critical knowledge and skills taught in our course.
The Reptile Academy Ltd and our course is currently endorsed by 4 accrediting bodies. The International Society for Animal Professionals (ISAP) and Institute for Animal Care Education (IACE) accredit the quality of our educational material. The International Animal Companion Network (ICAN) endorse us for our animal welfare practices and CPD-global accredit the course for continued professional development purposes.
The course content is highly interactive and contains a variety of ways to learn. Principally, the content is delivered via a series of modules and chapters. These contain click-through presentations, recorded seminars, virtual workshops, audio podcasts, recorded demonstrations and even a virtual field trip!
Modules & Progression
Introduction to Herpetology, Reptile & Amphibian Husbandry & Animal Welfare is a comprehensive course taught over 12 modules. As a general guideline, we recommend that each module can be completed over 1 month (taught content = 2 weeks, interactive workshops = 1 week, revision and assessment = 1 week, totalling 4 weeks). Therefore, we estimate that the course can be completed over 12 months. However, should you wish to spread your CPD out over a longer period, we provide access to the course platform for 24 months.
The Reptile Academy Ltd is accredited and endorsed by four organisations for the quality of our educational content, animal welfare practices and CPD value.
