Micro-credentials: Veterinary Sciences

Large Animal Micro-Credential

Are you interested in large animal medicine and wildlife, but find that you are lacking the experience and additional training required to be competent in the field? Is your current employer absolutely swamped with work and unable to find the time to help you develop those skills? Then these certificates may be your answer!

Northern’s Large Animal and Wildlife Certificate programs are designed by leading industry experts to provide additional training and experience to graduates of a recognized veterinary technician program. 

Each micro-credential will be primarily comprised of study materials and assignments that can be completed at your own pace, from within your current veterinary practice. At each session’s end, there will be an in-person training and skills evaluation. Completion of all 6 micro-credentials results in a Large Animal and Wildlife Certificate issued by Northern College.

The successful candidates will be able to function independently and confidently in establishing health monitoring and programs as part of a complete veterinary service delivery team.
