Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and corporate training, is proud to announce the release of its new Veterinary Assistant program. This course expands Career Step’s new student offerings to ten career programs and is designed to be completed in just a few months.
“We are proud to announce the launch of our Veterinary Assistant program,” said Steve Tober, Career Step President and CEO. “Our mission revolves around providing the education students need to improve their job prospects, and with this new program, students can be trained and working in just 2 to 3 months of part time study.”
The new Veterinary Assistant program was developed to train students to assist in providing care to animals through routine tasks performed under the direct supervision of a veterinarian or veterinary technician or technologist. The course provides 150 hours of curriculum, covering material such as examination room and office procedures, communication and client relations, and small and large animal nursing.
The Veterinary Assistant course follows the online format of other Career Step programs. Hosted on Career Step’s proprietary online learning platform, students have 24/7 access to all material, allowing them to study on the schedule and at the pace that works for their lifestyles.
“We work closely with students to help them explore a variety of paths when they are considering a new career,” said Ben Hartman, Vice President of Enrollments. “Through these discussions with thousands of individuals, we identified a need for this training program, and we are excited to help our students who have a passion for working with animals turn that interest into a career.”
