6/2/17 New Block Insurance Scheme Created
RAMP has negotiated a special insurance deal for registrants. Because the insurers feel reassured that you are working to high standards, they know their own risk is reduced. They have created a
new Block Scheme that provides you with industry-standard cover at much lower cost.
This Register clarifies the level of professionalism of musculoskeletal care given to animals, which enables animal owners and veterinary professionals to choose their musculoskeletal practitioner with confidence. RAMP makes no distinctions between different forms of training, but only of the standards of care given in practice.
This definitive listing will create a one-stop-shop that is quick and easy to reference. This means it can be used easily by veterinary professionals to locate a practitioner covering their area, with sound information about their credentials.
Becoming a registrant means you are a practitioner dedicated to high-quality care.
Being listed therefore ensures that your name will be confirmed when vets and animal owners search for a competent professional. This will dissolve the confusion that has developed in the marketplace, and create clear and fair grounds for informed choice.

We are creating three routes for Initial Applications:
1. If you can provide evidence that you meet the Gold Standard criteria from your training course experience, a Certificated Learning Application Form will be available shortly.
2. If your competence is based more on experience than formal training, there is an RPEL Application route - Recognition of Prior (Experiential) Learning - that takes into account your other relevant experience before, during and after your training course. There are three documents available below - please check all of them.
3. The Grandfather route - If you:
A. currently practice Chiropractic, Osteopathy and Physiotherapy techniques on animals, and
B. are a member of any of the following professional associations: MCA, ACPAT, AAO, RCC Animal Faculty, ASSVAP, IRVAP, IVCA, BVCA, IAAT, BCA, UCA, SCA, McTimoney-Corley Association, OCEPT Register or MAA,
you can apply by using the Grandfather Application Form available below. This process offers a short opportunity to join the Register through a truncated but rigorous process for experienced practitioners who are members of the Associations noted above.
NOTE: This Grandfather window closes for Applications on 31/10/17.
