The University of Tennessee at Martin Office of Extended Campus and Continuing Education has partnered with online course provider, ed2go, to offer an online Veterinary Assistant Career Certificate Program.
This 485-hour online program was developed to teach participants everything they need to know to begin this field.
Participants will learn the basics of animal anatomy, physiology and biology as they relate to the care and treatment of common pets, livestock and lab animals. They’ll acquire the essential skills needed to assist veterinary nurses in all aspects of basic treatment, surgery and radiology. They’ll also become proficient in the administrative practices and procedures involved in running a veterinary office.
“I know first-hand just how rewarding and satisfying a career in veterinary care can be,” said Kathy Ruane, chief instructor of the veterinary assistant program. “People entering the field today are lucky because it offers more opportunities now than ever before.”
