How to Apply

From early November 2020 non-vets have been able to undertake TB testing in cattle on behalf of a veterinary practice in England.  To be able to deliver this testing individuals must qualify as an Approved Tuberculin Tester, or ATT, and they must deliver the TB testing service via a veterinary practice and under the supervision of an Approved Veterinary Surgeon, or AVS.

In order to become an ATT, persons must:

  • Be at least 18 years old.
  • Hold a valid driving license and passport.
  • Hold at least 3 graded GCSEs or equivalent qualifications, in English, Maths, and a science or food production subject.
  • Have a clean criminal record.
  • Be approved by the Animal and Plant Health Agency.

There is also a need for at least six month’s cattle handling experience or alternatively three years of experience in a government job. An example would be working for a Local Authority providing certain inspection or authorisation activity.
