About Us

Central CPD and vet-eCPD together offer “the best of both” in terms of online and
attendance CPD courses.

Delivered by a team of respected small animal and exotics specialists from across the UK, our
programme of courses for vets and nurses offers great value for money. Delegate numbers are
limited at these events, so that they feel like relaxed and interactive seminars rather than more
formal lectures. When it comes to practical teaching, our delegates get lots of hands on experience
and personal tuition from the lecturer.

So come along in person…
All of our courses are hosted at our brand new headquarters in Central London, which offers
comfortable lecture facilities, and fully kitted-out dry and wet skills labs on site. Conveniently placed
for access via public transport, we encourage people where possible to “let the train take the
strain”, and make the most of the journey to and from the course. You might even get time to relax
and read a book!

…or catch up online…
Can’t make it along? No problem! All of our courses are professionally filmed and made
permanently available in lecture-size chunks on our online CPD portal www.vet-ecpd.com. You can
choose a subscription option for access to the whole site, or just select individual courses and
lectures to watch through our pay-per-view option.

Access to the footage of any courses you attended is free of charge, so if you want to relive an
“Aha!” moment or share something you learned with your colleagues, it’s all at your fingertips.

…and be one step ahead!
When it comes to online learning, we are already ahead of the curve with regards to the RCVS’
new vision for bespoke, outcomes-based CPD. With hundreds of hours of course material already
on the site (and growing all the time!) you can build yourself a tailor-made learning programme,
based on your particular needs, to watch and earn CPD credit for wherever and whenever suits
you.

and The Central CPD Team

Meet the team. The people you may meet along the way.....we are all vets or vet nurses so know the profession from the inside out.

Jo Hillard- Director

Jo qualified from Edinburgh in 2003, and has worked in both mixed and small animal practices, from sole charge to busy hospitals. She developed a passion for CPD after completing her GPCert in Small Animal Medicine in 2007, and started Central CPD in 2009 whilst working in a Central London practice and getting frustrated by the lack of easily accessible CPD for those in and around London. Jo has three young children, a Parson Russell called Molly and a lovely black cat called Monty, who all keep her and her husband Simon very busy- it is definitely not a quiet household!

Kerrie Crabb- Head of Operations

Kerrie has over 10 years' experience within the veterinary industry, starting out as a trainee veterinary nurse, qualifying in 2008 and progressing quickly to senior veterinary nurse within a small animal practice. During her time in practice, Kerrie worked as an assessor offering training and support to student veterinary nurses within the clinic. Kerrie is now proud to continue in the training tradition, working for Central CPD to support our clients for all of their CPD needs. When she's not in front of her PC, she is kept more than busy by her energetic 5 year old daughter, her (less energetic!) 35 year old husband and their two cheeky Bengal cats called Ruby and Murray who are always up to mischief!

Kat Campbell- Event Co-ordinator

Kat graduated from London in 2009 and worked in mixed practice in Bedfordshire and Kent before joining her current small animal practice in London in 2013. Her primary veterinary interests are diagnostic imaging (ultrasound), and soft tissue surgery. Kat joined the Central CPD team in 2012 as an event co-ordinartor after winning a mini-pad on our stand at the London Vet Show!

Rachel Sant- Event Co-ordinator

Rachel qualified from London in 1992 and has had a varied and interesting veterinary career to date- she spent 10 years in general practice and the next 10 in specialist practice, where she saw both medicine and dermatology referrals having gained her Certificate in Dermatology in 1999 and her Medicine Certificate in 2007. Rachel joined us as an even co-ordinator in 2012, and as well as organising the course and participating gives great feedback and course suggestions to ensure that we continue to provide high quality CPD to our delegates.

James Boyce- Videographer

James is a regular on almost all of our CPD courses, capturing footage for our online CPD platform. He studied TV and Film production at Portsmouth University, and started his own production company once he graduated. Owning two dogs and a tortoise, he saw the opportunity to gain an insight into the veterinary world as a no brainer, and he has been a fab addition to the Central CPD team. Capturing a wide variety of veterinary related material has been an enlightening look into the veterinary industry for him, and luckily for us he's not squeamish!!

Sophie Elliott- Event Co-ordinator

Sophie started working for Central CPD in 2017 as an events co-ordinator. She has been working in the veterinary industry for over 6 years as a receptionist (alongside Kerrie!) after completing a diploma in small animal care. She took a short break to start a family and now has a busy home with 2 young daughters, Tallulah her cat and she occasionally fits in time to ride her gorgeous horse Paddy.
