VTI uses the most up-to-date online technology and teaching methods to maximize student learning, designed to fit busy lifestyles.
All instructional materials are supplied to the student through the online eLearning platform for ease-of-access. The student’s program calendar guides the course progression and details instructor office hours to provide accessible learning opportunities and keep the student on pace for completion.
The eLearning experience takes the student through a guided instructional presentation for each module in the Veterinary Receptionist curriculum that incorporates related diagrams, practical images, and skill-based videos for a visual approach to learning. Material is reviewed in practice-test format throughout to prepare the student to successfully pass the end-of-module exams. Instructor communication to support student learning is provided through eLearning chat and weekly online office hours.
Each module outlines the hands-on skills the student should be able to perform with proficiency. Tutorials on the skills are provided in the eLearning modules, and practiced in an actual veterinary clinic setting that is located close to the student.
The student will perform an 8-hour clinical at the clinic, which may be paid by the veterinary clinic. The veterinary site may also provide a professional recommendation for the student, or engage as a potential employer.
