Veterinary Support Assistant Course

About the Level 3 Veterinary Support Assistant Certificate

Veterinary support assistants play a vital role in the running of a veterinary surgery. They work alongside veterinary nurses and surgeons to ensure the health and wellbeing of their animal patients. As a veterinary care assistant, your role would include grooming and feeding the animals, preparing the theatre, record keeping and monitoring the inpatients.

While you are studying towards this distance learning qualification you will quickly learn to use the appropriate medical terminology. The veterinary assistant training will also cover topics such as handling animals, small animal anatomy, euthanasia, infection control and animal safety and welfare. Altogether there are 16 modules to complete before you can embark on your new career.

Who should study this course?

This veterinary assistant course is aimed at individuals who want to become veterinary support assistants. It is also suitable for students planning to progress towards a career in veterinary nursing or even veterinary surgeons. Individuals with a passion for animals are also welcome to apply.

There are no prerequisites for any of our home study courses. All we ask is that you have access to our online portal, and interest in veterinary practices and that you are comfortable working through your distance learning course independently.

What happens after the course?

If you enjoyed studying towards this qualification, you may be interested in studying to a higher level. Many students go on to study veterinary nursing at university. Some people may even choose to progress to a degree in veterinary science.

On completion of your veterinary nurse qualifications you will be awarded a Level 3 certificate accredited by ABC Awards. This certificate should put you in good stance when applying for your first role as an animal nursing assistant. Alternative careers which may interest you include:

  • Animal care worker
  • Pet behaviour counsellor
  • Kennel worker
