We have been delivering MilkSure training to our clients for years, although none of us have attended the MilkSure for Vets training. What do we need to do?

At least one vet from the practice needs to attend an online MilkSure for Vets training course to be added to the MilkSure Register. Without this you will not be able to access the materials or deliver training to any clients wishing to register. Visit https://www.bcva.org.uk/cpd to check for Milksure for Vets Course dates.

We have one MilkSure Champion in the practice who delivers the Part 1 training, whilst the rest of us who deliver Part 2 training have never been on the course. Can we carry on as normal?

You can carry on with the MilkSure Registered Vet delivering Part 1 training, accessing materials and quizzes, and signing certificates on behalf of the other vets, during the interim period. Signing a MilkSure certificate obviously requires the MilkSure Registered Vet to check that an appropriate Action Plan is in place and that all relevant sections have been covered. From January 2022, to participate in the MilkSure programme, vets must have attended training and then can feature on the MilkSure Register, so it would be wise to start now. This also makes the accreditation process much more convenient.

I have a client who registered for MilkSure/MilkSure Top Up before 31 October; how does that work?

They have until 31 January 2022 to complete the training under the previous system. The vet carrying out the training does not need to be MilkSure Registered and the farmer can access the quiz with their own login. It would make sense to add the MilkSure Certificate to the HHP and encourage the farmer/vet practice to take responsibility for their own re-accreditation when it expires.

I have a client wanting to register for MilkSure training; what should I do?

Book them in for a date after 1 December 2020. After this time, you will have access to all the training materials and quizzes, provided you are a MilkSure Registered Vet. If your client has a requirement from their milk buyer or farm assurance scheme to act before this, please contact office@cattlevet.co.uk and a member of our team will get back to you (we appreciate your patience during this time of transition).

How do I find out whether I am on the MilkSure Register? What is my MilkSure login?

All MilkSure Registered Vets can be found on the MilkSure Register on the MilkSure website. Login details and further instructions have been sent to you via BCVA. Any queries, please contact the BCVA Office on office@cattlevet.co.uk
