CourseGraphic Online for Fall 2020
With more than 85 million households owning at least one pet, the veterinary field is a growing field!
Unlike other online programs, this program is taught by a live instructor in real time using Zoom technology.  Students will have the opportunity to interact with their instructor and with other students.  The program features step-by-step demonstrations as well as instructional videos designed to prepare students for entry level positions in a veterinary practice or clinic.  Students will learn correct handling and care of pets, proper examination procedures, and how to check for signs of illness and injury.  Additional topics covered include anatomy and physiology, medical terminology and acronyms, nutrition, legal, ethical, and professional standards, and maintenance and management of a veterinary practice.  This program includes a 24-hour volunteer experience, where students will hone their veterinary assistant and animal handling skills.
This class is entry level and specifically NOT a Veterinary Technician class, which requires a two-year degree program or equivalent.
Licensure/Certification – Licensure and certification are not required for employment as a veterinary assistant in California.
Students will need access to internet, PC, laptop, or tablet, and access to a printer to participate.
Must be 18+ years.
