It's really thrilling to make a difference.

I was still in a deep depression after having been thrown from a horse carriage, and was having a lot of trouble letting go of working with draft horses. But here I am again with a job that I always am thrilled to get up and go to – every single day! And in my last work evaluation I got superb marks and once again, it goes back to what I learned with you (Granville College) and was able to bring to the shelter, upping the quality of our medical side and customer service side as well. It’s really thrilling to make a difference.

The program really prepares you to be confident...

My name is Lana and I temporarily relocated from Calgary, Alberta to take the Veterinary Assistant Program and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made towards my future. I have come away with a completely new outlook on animal care, welfare and health management. The program really prepares you to be confident and well equipped to operate within a clinic setting. I even find that I am more comfortable taking care of my own animals now as well. Anyone who takes the VOA Program will be happy with the investment, just like I have been.

...a solid introduction to the world of animal health.

Hi, I am Sheahan. I have been taking the VOA® and in spite of being the oldest student in the class, I am having a blast. The instructor makes learning fun and easy in a warm, friendly environment. I’d recommend the program to anyone who is looking for a solid introduction to the world of animal health. It’s just the beginning of a whole lot more out there! PS – I travel from the Sunshine Coast via ferry and bus every day and it is well worth it!

...I've learned more in a few months than I ever expected to.

Hello, my name is Symone and this is Muffins. I am enjoying the VOA® program. Although it is hard work, it’s also a lot of fun. If you’re thinking of going into the Veterinary Assistant field, this is the best school to go to. All the instructors are helpful and outgoing. In a relaxed environment I’ve learned more in a few months than I ever expected to.

The methods they use to teach are incredibly interesting and effective.

My name is Stacy and this is Frodo. We are enrolled in the VOA® program at Granville Business College. This is an excellent program with the best teachers and administrator. I have never enjoyed school until I joined the VOA® class. The methods they use to teach are incredibly interesting and effective. This has been one of the best decisions I have ever made!

The staff was supportive and knowledgeable...

My name is Cynthia. I graduated from the Veterinary Assistant program at Granville Business College. I had previously been looking to make a career change and GC offered me that in just 24 weeks. I was extremely excited about the program and my chance to work in the animal health care field. I got a full-time job as a VOA at a small animal veterinary practice as soon as I graduated, and have been working here ever since. There is always a lot to learn. I am also employed by the City of Vancouver at the Stanley Park Children’s Zoo where I work as an animal attendant. I find both jobs rewarding. My experience at GBC was positive and educational. The staff was supportive and knowledgeable, and helped me to succeed in my career. I would highly recommend the Veterinary Assistant Program to anyone who enjoys working with both animals and people.
