Listed Below are the Curriculum Requirements and the structure of the program.

Program Structure

The curriculum for this program was designed after a combination of several of the leading Veterinary Programs. Through our program students will be prepared through a combination of online education and in person clinicals.

The program is expected to take between six months to one year to complete and after, graduates will be awarded with a certificate as a Veterinary Assistant.

The curriculum is designed for students to first complete a series of online courses that will give students access they need to succeed in a real clinical environment. 

Once complete with their online requirements students will complete a series of clinical requirements that will simulate the real tasks and duties of a Veterinary Assistant. 

Lastly once all clinicals have been completed and signed off by the attending Veterinarian. Students will submit their clinicals and receive their certificate as a Veterinary Assistant.
