Certificates pre-2012

NB Enrolment for the RCVS Certificate examinations is no longer available, and the last examinations have taken place.

Enrolments are now being accepted on the Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice.

The Certificate was the first level of postgraduate qualification awarded by RCVS, and indicates that the holder is a competent clinician who has proved their experience and expertise by examination in their chosen subject.

A list of RCVS Certificate holders across all subjects is included in the back of the RCVS Registers, and can also be downloaded in the 'Related documents' box. Certificate holders are entitled to place the appropriate letters after their name to indicate their achievement.

Historical information for each subject such as syllabi, reading lists, etc can be obtained by contacting us at
