The Northeast Texas Community College Continuing Education Department is pleased to announce that it will offer a new Veterinary Assistant Program this summer. Classes will be held May 28th through August 27th on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:00-9:30 p.m. on the main NTCC campus.

Instruction includes 100+ hours in the classroom, plus an optional 40-hour externship. The total cost is $1,900 and a generous payment plan is available. Some students may be eligible for financial aid. 

“We have had many requests for a veterinary assistant program and we are thrilled to be able to fulfill that demand. The class meets in the evenings, so it’s a great option for working adults who are interested in changing careers,” Jimmy Smith, NTCC Director of Continuing Education and Corporate Training, said.
