Nationally Accredited Qualifications

Lead the Field in Integrative Veterinary Medicine with CIVT's accredited post-graduate qualifications:

These qualifications are available to veterinarians from beginners to more experienced.


Successful completion of one of these qualifications will enable you to integrate a new therapy into practice. You will be able to offer this service to clients and increase treatment options for patients. They:


  • Provide practitioners with skills and knowledge to practice the new integrative therapy competently
  • Provide practitioners with an accredited postgraduate level award based on assessment of their competence
  • Provide employees and clients with evidence of a high level of competence
  • Provide participants with previous training a potential bridge to higher postgraduate qualifications through Recognition of Prior Learning.

The College of Integrative Veterinary Therapies is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO National Provider No. 91769). We offer nationally accredited training under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). Nationally recognized training provides a standard against which courses and colleges can be assessed and assures the student that the course is of an appropriate standard and that government guidelines are met. As RTO accreditation is an ongoing activity you can be assured that the high standards of the CIVT are maintained.  This training and qualification is available across Australia and internationally. 


As these courses provide education and training in practical and theoretical skills relevant to the provision and integration of the therapy into veterinary clinical practice, for entry into the Graduate Diplomas  candidates must hold either:

  • an undergraduate veterinary science bachelor degree, DVM or equivalent OR
  • a relevant bachelor degree or postgraduate qualifications (Graduate Certificate/Diploma or Master) together with significant relevant vocational practice OR
  • a postgraduate qualification in veterinary science (Master or Doctorate)
  • exceptions may be made on a case by case basis at the discretion of the College depending on previous qualifications and experience.

Learners should also have sound skills in English written and oral communication, literacy and numeracy.


Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process where a student may be granted credit or partial credit towards a qualification in recognition of skills and knowledge gained through work experience, life experience and/ or formal learning. Recognition of Prior Learning is offered to those who have pre-existing skills in their chosen area of study. This offers an entry point for people who have completed  training prior to the availability to the Graduate Diploma. These candidates need to complete an initial survey of experience and knowledge to determine if the RPL pathway is appropriate. Then they enrol in RPL for the course and begin the process of submission of evidence. This is a rigorous process. Any gaps in the mapping of skills and knowledge may need to filled by completing individual Units of Competency or elements of a Competency. A portfolio of evidence towards RPL is submitted. This process can take 1 to 6 months to complete.


CIVT Management is responsible for the quality of its training and assessment services in compliance with the Standards for RTOs 2015, and for the issuance of the AQF certification documentation. Once you have commenced the training and assessment in your chosen Course of study CIVT is committed to completing the delivery of the training assessment within the agreed duration and will further negotiate the timing for completion of the training assessment if you are unable to complete the course due to illness or extenuating circumstances.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss a possible pathway for you please contact us- we look forward to talking with you!
