OAVT Professionalism and Ethics (P&E) Workshop:

The P&E is required for an individual to obtain their Registered status as outlined in By-Law #2 of the Ontario Association of Veterinary Technicians. This one-day workshop provides a remarkable opportunity to engage in an interactive learning environment alongside practicing and experienced RVTs. The outcome of the seminar will be to develop an understanding of the professionalism and ethics demanded in our highly specialized profession.

Participants will explore real work situations and challenges of being a professional RVT. Specific goals of this tailored workshop include:

Workshop materials and presentations are facilitated and led by practiced RVTs who help guide the learning process through real case studies and analysis.

Participants appreciate gaining an eye opening understanding of the RVT profession from a perspective that will enable them to feel confident at the workplace, when faced with challenging situations and decisions.

Participants are required to bring a pen/writing materials to make notes and participate in the final survey.
