Core/Elective Course

Veterinary Assistant Certification II (HAG2392B)

Veterinary Assistant Certification II explores the basic systems of animals. The course discusses animal cells and tissues, explores the skeletal, circulatory, respiratory, renal, reproductive, digestive, nervous, endocrine and immune systems. The course also covers basic animal health and nutrition and explores veterinary sciences careers.


Although it's not a prerequisite, we highly recommend the Animal Science I and II courses prior to Veterinary Certification I and II courses. If you plan to work in a large animal clinic, we also highly recommend classes such as Beef, Sheep, Swine, Poultry and Equine Sciences.
