The Veterinary Technical Assistant is a valued member of a veterinary practice team and works alongside animal health technicians, veterinary professionals, and shelter staff in the animal industry. The Full-Time Veterinary Technician Assistant Diploma Program will give you the technical knowledge and practical experience you need to have a rewarding career in animal care without spending years in school. In addition to classroom learning in a bright, modern space, students actively participate in labs, practical demonstrations and exciting field trips to animal care settings. We have frequent visits from industry guest speakers to furry friends of a wide range of animal species. Classrooms are led by experienced instructors who are genuinely interested in helping you enter the animal health professional field.
Granville College has provided students with hands-on training and practical experience in the Veterinary Technician Assistant field for over 27 years. Programs are interactive, and taught by instructors who have years of experience working in real veterinary clinics. Unlike other schools, you’ll have the same instructor who will get to know how you learn, and help you take your training and apply it outside of the classroom.
