We will be hosting an Animal Medicines Training Regulatory Authority (AMTRA) exam training session with Sally Harmer Animal Health Consultancy in November 2018.
The training course will take place from Thursday 8th November to Sunday 11th November, at our headquarters in Wesham, Preston.
In the UK, individuals have to pass an exam to prescribe and supply certain categories of animal medicines. The AMTRA training sessions are to assist individuals who want to become a Suitably Qualified Person (SQP) in the field of Veterinary Medicine.
There are different SQP qualifications to determine which animal medicines an individual can prescribe and/or supply, including products for farm animals, horses and pets.
Sally Harmer, of Sally Harmer Animal Health Consultancy Ltd who will be running the course at Trilanco, said:
“To become an SQP, people have to pass several exams covering the different areas of prescribing to demonstrate animal health knowledge and understanding of the legal system. The exams are not easy, and support needs to be in place to help the students.
“Good SQPs typically sell more as they tend to interact better with customers. A lot of veterinary staff are SQPs because it gives them knowledge and confidence when dealing with clients.
“I run small group training sessions to encourage students to interact and support each other’s learning, and so that I can deliver a high level of teaching. This approach has delivered great student results and very positive feedback. It also means students can train more locally which has both a cost and time benefit.”
Martin Balmer, Managing Director at Trilanco, said:
“AMTRA SQP qualifications are a very useful staff development tool. Trilanco’s sales team are encouraged to become SQPs because it enables them to better support customers as they have greater knowledge and can advise on a wider range of products.
“Trilanco is making its boardroom available as a venue for AMTRA training, to both support our team’s development and to support businesses and students in the local area, looking to gain the SQP qualification.”
Sally is a qualified R-SQP and has worked in the Animal Health industry for nearly 25 years in different roles both on the manufacturer and retail side of the animal health business achieving significant success.
Sally now works as an animal health industry consultant and trainer working with manufacturers, vets and retailers supporting product marketing, industry projects and AMTRA training. Sally also does some locum SQP cover for local retailers and is still involved with animal health product treatment planning on a number of farms.
In addition, Sally writes articles on a regular basis promoting good practice both for livestock keepers and other SQPs. Sally comes from a farming background and still helps on the family beef and sheep farm near Llanybydder when time allows.
Kevin Duffy Celebrates 30th Work Anniversary at Trilanco
Kevin Duffy, Pet Sales Manager at Trilanco, celebrates his 30th year working at the equine, pet and agricultural products wholesaler this month.
Kevin joined the business in 1988 and is one of Trilanco’s longest serving colleagues. His first role was in the warehouse where he progressed within the team from warehouse operative, picking and packing products, to despatch supervisor and stock controller.
Kevin then became part of the delivery team, driving all over the North of England in one of Trilanco’s vans for five years. Kevin said: “When I was delivering products, it was the first time I spoke with customers and I learned a lot about the products they needed – this is where my bug for selling started!”
In 2000, Kevin joined Trilanco’s in-house telesales team processing orders and sharing information about product offers and promotions. He fondly remembers this role as a time when he developed relationships with the customers he spoke with on a regular basis, some of whom he still speaks with today.
Kevin’s role in sales transitioned from being based in the office to being field-based, and in 2006 he became an Area Sales Manager, overseeing accounts for customers situated along the M62, in Ireland and in the Isle of Man.
Kevin was also instrumental in the growth of Trilanco’s own-brand, Easidri. He exhibited Easidri’s pet products on the show circuit and supported retailer open days for over 10 years.
In 2017, Kevin became Pet Sales Manager, focusing on Trilanco’s pet product offering and supporting customers throughout the UK to develop their pet business.
Kevin said: “As Trilanco has developed, I’ve also been able to grow, and I’ve enjoyed a variety of roles. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all my customers and colleagues, past and present, for their support.”
Martin Balmer, Managing Director at Trilanco, said: “Kev has supported the business in various roles over the years and has always approached new challenges in a positive way. It’s great to see individuals progress in the business. Congratulations to Kev on his 30 years at Trilanco – and may there be many more!”
Outside of work, Kevin has a Cockerpoo called Cooper, enjoys playing golf and spending time with his family. Kevin also holds the NOAH Certificate of Animal Health (NCAH).
