Vancouver Island University (Nanaimo) now offers an Animal Care Aide Program. VIU is looking to partner with SD#63 to offer this program to interested Grade 12 graduates in the Victoria area. Prepare for work in the fascinating field of animal care.
This part-time, non-credit Certificate Program provides the
knowledge and basic skills needed for entry-level employment
in animal care facilities. It is intended for individuals with no
previous formal training and for existing staff and volunteers
who wish to upgrade their skills. The program emphasizes
small animal care in hospital/clinical settings, however the
training is valuable and transferable to other animal care
Please see Mrs. Rhodes or Mr. Arsenault in the Career Centre to find out more about this Animal Care Aide Program.
