Under the new phase of its highly successful VetTrain program, Vets Beyond Borders (VBB) is delivering clinical training courses on the premises of VetTrain PARTNER ORGANISATIONS (VTPOs).

Please note that application for registration as a  VETTRAIN PARTNER ORGANISATION (VMPO) can only be made by an VBB Affiliate. If your organisation is not yet affiliated with VBB, please follow this LINK.

Application is FREE to all but for-profit and government organisations. A lack of resources does not necessarily mean your organisation is ineligible for registration.

IMPORTANT NOTES: Before submitting a registration application, please read the Terms & Conditions of VTPO registration so you are aware of your obligations and commitments in relation to information provided to VBB during the registration process.

It is essential that information provided by prospective VTPOs is as accurate as possible. This information will give us an understanding of your organisation and help us determine if and how we can provide on-site VetTrain courses for your staff.

A copy of the completed form will be emailed to you following submission. We will notify you of the outcome of your application within four weeks.

If you have any questions about the VTPO registration process, please contact us at vettrain@vetsbeyondborders.org.

We look forward to receiving your application.
