Become an AMTRA RAMA - The process in summary
The standard process of becoming an AMTRA RAMA is administratively straight forward but it does require a significant commitment in terms of learning, simply follow the distinct stages set out below:
1. Enrol with AMTRA
Complete an enrolment form (On-line RAMA Enrolment STANDARD, On-line RAMA Enrolment VETERINARY NURSE, or a paper form to print and return) with the Appropriate Fee. We'll send you a Training Manual for you to study. If you wish, you can also book on a course run by one of the colleges. If you book a course with one of the colleges, you must still enrol directly with AMTRA.
2. Book an exam
Send us the exam booking form, and then sit the exam – good luck! If you book a course with one of the colleges, you must still book the exam directly with AMTRA.
3. Wait for your results
Your results can take up to 9 weeks after the exam. If you pass the necessary modules and the viva (oral exam) you will become a RAMA, with the obligations and duties that entails.
That’s it! The process in its essentials is simple, but please read the details.
