Flexible class hours, Affordable


Lack of information that will be needed once you get a job in the industry.

I wish I would’ve had a better teacher but with hard work and dedication I made it. Job placement or externship would’ve been helpful rather than finding a pharmacy on your own.

Too many note writing, needs more hands on training

Other comments

This is a great course to take to get some basic knowledge about the Veterinarian field. I really enjoyed it but felt that there was more to learn and maybe the course should be a little longer to better prepare for the actual job.
