Every good veterinarian practice has assistants on staff - people who love animals, know a lot about animal care, but are capable administrators, as well. Our programs are designed to prepare you for that role, and our certificates serve as proof of your professional competence. Learn how to welcome and manage patients, stay on top of agendas, and keep everything organized. Our valuable diploma opens many doors for you.

We often hire graduates from this school. This is because our sector has jobs with many responsibilities. Therefore, we need responsible people. We know that this school makes sure to help their students achieve perfection. Everyone who graduates from here must be aware that there are many possibilites waiting for them. - employerSpeaks

Many veterinarians join a chain. This allows them to focus on a particular species or treatment and allows them to specialize. There is also more opportunity to refer patients to each other and to share knowledge. In this school, you learn everything you need to make the right specialization. This is necessary, because vet clinics take on more and more diverse animal species. Reptiles are gaining popularity, for example, and we all know someone who has a parrot. Their owners prefer to visit a specialist rather than a general vet.

Animal Care, hundredPercentOfTheTime

Animal care providers see that their jobs evolve digitally. Appointments are scheduled online, video consultations emerge, and every practice and animal event has social media. For assistants, it's an extra task on their list. They provide customer service, while the veterinarian deals with the medical side of things.

"I have always had a lot of different animals at home; horses, dogs, cats, goats, chickens, rabbits… Of course I took good care of them, but I wanted to know more. After a lot of research I found the home study all-round animal care. The teacher was super helpful and always answered my questions very clearly. Now that I have my diploma, I want to open my own petting zoo!" - exStudentSpeaking
