Why Is Training Important?

Choosing and learning to use a new ultrasound machine is daunting. To be able to get the most out of your ultrasound machine, it is important to receive expert training and on-going support.

High quality training in animal pregnancy scanning is difficult to find. Vet schools consider it too basic to teach their students (a misconception!), yet too complex to teach anybody outside of the veterinary profession. For this reason, expert training in the use of ultrasound has been inaccessible to the majority of people.

Our ultrasound training courses for breeders are taught by sonographers who have all been teaching ultrasound for small animal pregnancy scanning for the last ten years. Click here to book your place now.

Why learn from a sonographer?

A sonographer is somebody who has a post-graduate degree in Medical Ultrasound. This means that they have spent a minimum of 4 (not necessarily consecutive) years at university, and usually at least another 2 in clinical practice before they are able to obtain their accreditation. They must then maintain this accreditation by performing a certain number of clinical scans every year (usually over 500), and demonstrate their attendance at ultrasound courses and conventions.

Our team began teaching ultrasound for pregnancy detection to veterinarians, vet nurses and breeders alike in 2011. Our award-winning courses have evolved over the years and now emcompass not only small domestic animal scanning (cats and dogs), but farm animals, too – particularly cows, goats and sheep.

In 2018, we began teaching online in order to make our courses fully accesible to our clients in North America. We have been pleasantly surprised by their success, and in 2019, the popularity of our online teaching overtook in-person tutoring for the first time: a trend that has continued ever since.
