Veterinary Assistant Training Information Session
If you have a nurturing spirit and a desire to help animals, consider a career in the veterinary field! This course trains students to assist veterinarians and veterinary technicians in providing medical care to sick and injured animals. Students training as veterinary assistants will also learn how to help in the office and with customer relations in addition to examinations, hospital procedures, surgical preparation, and laboratory tests.
The 150 hour course includes a 60 hour clinical externship experience. Please note that the clinical externship will most likely take place during normal business hours and successful completion of the externship is required to complete the course. Externship dates will be given in the first month of class to ensure ample time to inform current employers of your training, if needed, as time off from work may be required depending on your schedule. Students must complete a background check at an approved provider in order to participate in the clinical externship portion of the program. Prior felony convictions may prevent participation in the program. The fee for the background check is NOT included in the course fee.
Course Prerequisites and Special Notes: A high school diploma or GED is required. In addition, students must have the following minimum abilities: psychomotor skills (eye-hand coordination and finger dexterity), visual acuity (normal or corrected), and the ability to lift 30 pounds in the clinical setting.
Students may be required to meet specific health requirements and drug testing prior to placement in the clinical portion of the course. This is based on the requirements of the externship site and will be determined at placement. Any fees to meet health requirements are NOT included in the course fee.
