You must meet the following prerequisites to become a fully accredited member of the Animal Ultrasound Association (AUA):
- Have completed sonographer-led AUA-approved training courses, such as the VIS courses (levels 1 and 2), hold a BNVA-approved vet nurse ultrasound qualification, or be a licensed veterinarian.
- Have a minimum of 6 months’ scanning experience.
If you do not yet meet the above criteria, don’t worry! You can sign up as a partial member for now, and upgrade your membership later. If for any reason you sign up as a full member but do not meet the above criteria, you will simply be refunded in full and your membership canceled.
You will also be asked to upload three scans to your member area within 8 weeks of joining. This is to allow one of our in-house sonographers to give you feedback (confidentially) on your work, and will also provide material that will help us to promote your business. One of our team will be on hand to talk you through this simple process.
