Microchip Implant Training

Pet-ID Microchips has been involved in running Microchip Implant Training Courses for over 20 years.

Our comprehensive 1-day Training Course is for those wishing to implant companion animals including dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets and covers all aspects of microchip technology.

The Microchip Implant Training Course run by Pet-ID Microchips has been approved by Defra through the Microchip Trade Association.  This is a fully assessed nationally recognised training course.  If required, delegates can opt for the additional Lantra Awards Level 3 qualification. This is optional and not required by Defra for training compliance.

Our Training Courses are run by experienced Microchip Implant Training Tutors and are structured to ensure delegates are taught to microchip companion animals* safely and accurately and understand the technology and regulations, together with the registration and reunification processes involved with microchip databases.

Delegates are continually assessed throughout the Course, whether it be individual or group session (6 delegates max). Group sessions are often the more beneficial as they promote greater discussion and questioning and delegates learn from watching a larger number and variety of animals being implanted than would be possible in an individual session.

The Course is ideal for companion animal breeders, animal wardens, animal welfare staff, veterinary staff and all those working with companion animals. It is open to candidates over 18 years old, who must, with reasonable adjustments, be able to undertake the full range of competences required to achieve this qualification.

Please note, implanters who have been trained by Pet-ID Microchips prior to 24th February 2015 will be adopted into the new scheme.
