Veterinary Assistant Certificate Program
This	program	is	designed	for	the	student	interested	in	pursuing	an	entry-level	career	in	the	field	of	
veterinary	medicine.	Veterinary	assistants	serve	as	integral	members	of	the	veterinary	team	under	
direct	 supervision	 of	 the	 veterinarian	 or	 veterinary	 technician.	Trained	 veterinary	 assistants	 offer	
added	value	to	a	veterinary	practice	and	a	certificate	in	veterinary	assisting	will	enhance	your	resumé.
In	response	to	a	need	for	veterinary	assistant	programs,	MCCC	offers	a	curriculum	that	is	designed	
in	the	spirit	of	the	National	Association	of	Veterinary	Technicians	in	America	(NAVTA)	guidelines*	
for	veterinary	assistant	training.	
Upon	completion	of	the	program,	you	will	have	an	understanding	of	the	roles	of	all	members	of	the	
veterinary	medical	team.	Curriculum	will	include	office	and	hospital	procedures,	communication	
and	 client	 relations,	 pharmacy	 and	 pharmacology,	 exam	 room	 procedures,	 surgical	 preparation	
and	 assisting,	 animal	 nursing,	 laboratory	 procedures	 and	 diagnostic	 imaging.	 	 The	 classroom	
learning	will	be	followed	by	an	optional	externship	in	a	pre-approved	veterinary	setting,	which	
will	provide	you	with	valuable	skills	and	confidence	for	real-world	experience.		
To	earn	the	certificate,	the	student	must	successfully	complete	all	four	(4)	modules	in	sequential	order.
Individual courses may be taken (Modules 1-3) on a non-certificate basis.
*NAVTA approval pending. Once approved, students will have the knowledge and abilities to take
NAVTA’s national certification examination.
