LIVONIA, Mich., Nov. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- MedCerts has partnered with VetBloom to deliver a world-class online veterinary assistant program that not only meets the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) standards, but uniquely prepares students around the country to be job-ready in as few as 6-months.
The VetBloom Veterinary Assistant Program is one of only four NAVTA approved programs in the United States to be delivered online, allowing unprecedented access for students wherever traditional classroom-based programs are not available, or NAVTA approved. Graduates of the program are eligible to take the nationally recognized Approved Veterinary Assistant examination to earn the AVA (Approved Veterinary Assistant) credential.
"Approved Veterinary Assistants are vital members of the integrated veterinary healthcare team, and this collaborative approach is crucial to providing the highest level of care to patients and their human companions. We are thrilled to be partnering with MedCerts to be able to expand the reach of this program", said Patrick Welch, DVM, MBA, DACVO, Ethos Veterinary Health's Chief Knowledge Officer and founder of VetBloom.
"This partnership is exciting because it represents a unique collaboration between leaders in education and industry," said Dana Janssen, MedCerts Chief Product Officer. "There is no better way to ensure students are job-ready than to offer best-in-class curriculum from an industry leader like VetBloom, anchored by MedCerts' proven model for positive student outcomes."
To ensure that students gain the hands-on experience required to become an Approved Veterinary Assistant, externship opportunities are facilitated by the VetBloom team and delivered through veterinary hospitals across the country.
"Veterinary assistants play a vital role in veterinary hospitals. The demand for quality help is growing and we are thrilled to offer our students an opportunity to step into this high-demand job market," said Jason Aubrey, CEO of MedCerts. "This program allows us to combine our school's commitment to student development with the highest level of industry expertise, setting up our graduates for the ultimate success in their career."
