Programs are interactive, and taught by instructors who have years of experience working in real veterinary clinics.

Hi, my name is Krissy and I graduated from the VOA® Class 47 at Granville Business College. The program is fantastic and the amount of knowledge I gained is invaluable. The teachers and administrators were very supportive and the methods used to instruct the class were great. During the program you learn a tremendous amount. The classes include; lectures, mock veterinary clinics, field trips, animal handling and restraint classes. We learned that the role of a Veterinary Assistant is very important since we make the first impression to the public. I recommend this program to anyone who loves animals and is considering working with them.
