If you want to become a veterinary technician, Ashworth College can help you get your ducks in a row. Our online vet tech school comes with everything you need to begin working in a zoo, veterinary clinic, or animal hospital. In this article, we’re going to let the cat out of the bag about all we have to offer.
At Ashworth College, we provide lots of resources to help you get the most out of online education. Our Learning Resources Center and ProQuest® connect you to libraries, labs, and thousands of research sources. The Binder™ mobile app lets you conveniently take course materials on the go. We also offer Career Services to help you with job-placement when you’re ready to look for employment in the field.
All these resources– and more– are available through your student portal. You’ll be able to easily access your courses within 24 hours of enrollment, check your grades, and communicate with teachers whenever you have questions or concerns.
Unlike some vet tech schools online, our course includes 270 hours of clinical experience to give you the hands-on training you need for the work world. We can place you at one of our already-established sites, or help you find new externship opportunities in your community. There, you’ll work alongside veterinarians and veterinary assistants to care for animals large and small.
Our AVMA CVTEA-accredited vet tech school includes four semesters of comprehensive coursework. Here’s a sample of course offerings:
- Introduction to veterinary technology
- Veterinary anatomy and physiology
- Veterinary pharmacology
- Veterinary diagnostic imaging
- Laboratory and exotic animal care and nursing
Upon successful completion of the program, you will graduate with a Veterinary Technician Associate of Applied Science degree and will be eligible to sit for the Veterinary Technician National Examination.
When you enroll in vet tech school at Ashworth College, you’ll be welcomed into a vibrant community of like-minded people who can help you along the way.
