Course Overview

Did you know that jobs involving animals provide some of the highest levels of career satisfaction? Our furry friends have the power to make us smile when we’re feeling sad, and bring us immeasurable joy and comfort. What could be more rewarding, therefore, than a career dedicated to taking good care of them?

Throughout this online animal care course, you’ll study animal welfare legislation, explore the history of domestic animals, and the benefits of pet ownership. As pet owners have a legal duty when looking after animals, you’ll learn about some of the laws they must follow, and familiarise yourself with health and safety in animal care. You’ll also gain a comprehensive understanding of animal anatomy and physiology.

This course will provide you with an excellent foundation of knowledge from which to pursue a career within the industry, or to move on to higher education. If you’re aiming to become a veterinarian or work in veterinary nursing, it’s an excellent place to start. Best of all, you’ll study in your own time, at your own pace – ideal if you’ve work or family commitments.
