Real World Vet Assistant Training & Mentor Locations Near You
This is an important part of any veterinary assistant program and worth discussion here. As mentioned earlier it is possible for some people to simply get a job at a hospital and hope to learn enough to make it without formal training. This is certainly a difficult route to take because you will lack the foundational knowledge required. Conversely some people try bargain basement programs that offer little or no hands-on experience. The challenge there is that being a veterinary assistant isn’t something you can learn without firsthand observation and experience in the real world. We believe you need a combination of both academic knowledge AND hands-on which is precisely why both are included in the ABC Veterinary Assistant Program.
ABC has working relationships with over 4000 veterinary facilities across North America. This too is important. Some people enrol at a school that has a working rapport with a half dozen hospitals. That’s fine until you move across the country and out of their territory. Our territory is all 50 US states and every Canadian province. That means you will be assigned an externship in your area.
Because of our extensive mentor network, you may be able to take this program pretty much anywhere in Canada. Click here to visit our locations page or simply call 1-800-795-3294 and speak with an admissions counsellor directly.
