The AIRC Difference

AIRC Nurses are at the top of their profession with many of our graduated students holding senior level positions in the most advanced Veterinary facilities internationally and across Australia. Many of our students are also passionate about advancing the profession so donate their time on the many committees who oversee our industry progression. Our courses set up our graduates to feel fully prepared to launch their career. A large majority of our graduates return to do higher qualifications.

Our History

In November 1996 we established Crampton Consulting Group (CCG) and Australian Veterinary Nurse Resource Centre (AVNRC) to form a professional yet cost effective training company specifically tailored to staff training and veterinary nursing.

Since then, our company has grown to become one of Australia’s leading veterinary industry educators. With over 1250 students across Australia and Asia, and as a member of the Provet Group of Companies, AIRC and CCG are a one-stop shop for practice development and educational excellence.
