VETERINARY ASSISTANT TRAINING
Chesapeake College’s Veterinary Assistant Training prepares students to work in the animal care field. As trained Veterinary Assistants, students will support veterinary technicians and veterinarians in a variety of inpatient and outpatient activities. The training consists of four credit-free courses that include supervised clinical practicum hours completed outside of the classroom. A Certificate of Completion will be awarded to students who successfully complete the training.
Pre-requisites: Students must be 18 years of age prior to the beginning of the Veterinary Assistant Training course. Students must be high school graduates. In order to receive a certificate of completion for this course, students will be required to take a final examination, attend 85 percent of the classroom hours, and complete the assigned practicum hours.
Veterinary Assistant Training uses live animals for teaching purposes. Chesapeake College takes all necessary safety precautions when students interact with live animals, however, the potential exists for students to be bitten, scratched or injured by an animal while participating in this training. Chesapeake College makes no representation concerning any animal’s exposure to rabies or other diseases and does not provide medical insurance or worker’s compensation for any injuries suffered while participating in this program. Students are required to show proof of medical insurance.
