ID Card and Official Stamp
Candidate Testing Veterinarians must be nominated by their National Federation or the FEI Veterinary Department. They must be listed as a Permitted Treating Veterinarian (PTV) and an Official Veterinarian (OV). In order to be promoted to Testing Veterinarian, the applicant will be required to complete the following 3 steps:
· Step 1: attend a Testing Veterinarian Course.
· Step 2: complete the Testing Veterinarian Online Examination
· Step 3: pass a practical evaluation with a Testing Veterinarian at an FEI event.
Step 1: attend a Testing Veterinarian Course.
The Testing Veterinarian Course is designed to prepare you for your future responsibilities as Testing Veterinarian and will cover aspects such as Clean Sport & Global EADCMP, Equine Prohibited Substances and Sampling procedures. Please consult the FEI Course Calendar for the scheduled Testing Courses.
Step 2: complete the Testing Veterinarian Online Examination
Once you have attended and passed the Testing Veterinarian Course, you are required to complete the Testing Veterinarian Online Examination. You can access the Online Examination with your FEI ID via this link. Continue by following the instructions indicated.
The Online Examination is based upon the FEI Veterinary Regulations that relate to testing, the course material from the Testing Veterinarian Course and the material published in the FEI Testing Veterinarian Manual.
The Examination consists of 30 multiple choice questions and you must correctly answer 28 questions to pass the examination. In addition, the examination must be completed within 45 minutes. You will only be given two attempts to pass the examination, therefore it is recommended that you are familiar with all of the material and resources provided during your training.
Step 3: pass a practical evaluation
Once the applicant has completed step 2, they will be requested to contact the FEI Veterinary Department to organize the next step: the Practical Evaluation. The Practical Evaluation will be carried out by an established FEI Testing Veterinarian at a designated FEI event.
Once the 3 steps have been completed, the applicant can submit their Application for Promotion (see below) to their National Federation for approval and signature. The form should then be submitted, within 2 years of completing the 3 above-mentioned steps, to the FEI Veterinary Department who will promote the applicants who have satisfied all requirements.
Successful Applicants will receive their Testing Veterinarian ID card which they can access in their online account.
All course material, examinations and evaluations are presented and/or conducted in English.
All Testing Veterinarians are required to present a valid Testing Veterinarian ID card at all FEI events where they are officiating.
