This course is aimed at veterinarians and the more experienced EDT who wishes to sit the BEVA/BVDA EDT examination in the future.

book iconAbout the Course

The Advanced Theoretical Equine Dental Technicians course is moving online for the first time this year. The course will provide you the necessary knowledge to help ensure you are ready to sit the BEVA/BVDA exam.

Split into two parts, our online pre-recorded lecture package will give you access to nine on-demand lecture presentations that you will be able to watch in your own time and cover the theory needed for the theory section of the exam. You will then join a live online lecture and discussion day on Friday 11 September 2020, where our course speakers will provide lectures on key topics as well as provide a discussion on common reasons for previous exam failures.

You will also be provided with comprehensive electronic course notes for the live lectures that are considered essential reading to prepare you to sit the exam.
