    Hi I wondered if people could recommend some animal home study/CPD courses that are fairly cheap?

    Depends what you are interested in and whether it is for experience or the qualification. Are you in the Pet or Veterinary trade as they tend to have a lot of in-house courses available anyway?

    Or look at the Animal Care College online for starters...

    I really don’t know even if we have such a course in UK. Maybe zoology or Vet science may have some specialization.

    Yes, it depends on what you are wanting to do long term. There are a lot of courses out there. Some full time and some part-time but try and have a basic plan of what you want to achieve. An accredited canine first aid course might be something to look at. If you don't want to travel I do an online course that is accredited and covers a wide range of emergency situations. Video demonstrations and study at your own pace. Very reasonably priced.

    Thanks for reminding everyone and I fully agree. As a Veterinary nurse and registered clinical animal behaviour counsellor I have spent a great deal of money getting myself well qualified. However, short courses can be reasonably priced - a bit like a St John's ambulance course can save a life - it ain't expensive but certainly worthwhile....and reasonably priced.
