Event description

Description

If you love working with animals, take the first step towards a new career in the veterinary field with College of the Desert in partnership with MK Education’s Veterinary Assistant Training Program. This program can be completed in as little as six months.

Veterinary assistants are entry-level healthcare professionals that work in many different veterinary settings. They work with Veterinarians and Veterinary Technicians to provide medical care for sick or injured animals. Veterinary assistants handle sterilizing lab and surgical equipment. Under the supervision of a Veterinarian, Veterinary Assistants may be asked to administer medications and provide pre/post op care.

College of the Desert’s Partnership and Community Education (PaCE) Department is pleased to announce a new Veterinary Assistant training program beginning November 1st, 2017. Our Veterinary Assistant Training Program is designed to help you advance your current health care career or to find entry-level employment in this field. This program makes it possible for you to build on your existing career rather than start a new one from scratch—and we help you do it around the busy work schedule and family obligations you already have. You can feel confident that this flexibility also comes with high standards in training and education. Get started in an undergraduate certificate program and earn credential employers recognize.

Join us at College of the Desert’s FREE Information Session scheduled September 9th, 2017, at 6:00 pm. Get to know your instructors, discuss Workforce Innovative and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funding opportunities, handle the materials and resources used in class, and interview with our preceptors for your externship placement ALL IN ONE PLACE!!

College of the Desert is a Certified Training Provider for the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) program. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is a federal law which provides training for people who are out of work, those that need training to change career paths, or people whose skills need improving in order to obtain a new job. Candidates must be determined, eligible, and suitable in order to receive WIOA funds. If eligible, candidates can have their full tuition covered as well as any additional expenses necessary to start a new career. College of the Desert offers training programs, but does not determine if you qualify for WIOA training funds. This program does have open enrollment and payment plan options for those who may not qualify for WIOA funds.

Payment plans are available for those who qualify. For questions regarding payment plans, please contact Dr. Priti Shah at 630.541.3600 ext. 8602 or email PShah@mkedu.org.
