The externship component of the program is comprised of 200 clinical hours working in an off-site veterinary facility. Through the externship, CCC students gain practice in real life situations, rather than learning just from textbooks.

     The Veterinary Assistant program can be completed in as few as 35 weeks, and graduates receive a Certificate of Completion, Veterinary Assistant diploma, and are prepared to immediately enter into entry-level positions in the field. ICH graduates are supported as they make the transition from school to the job market, thanks to the Career Services department. ICH’s Career Services department provides every student with a wide range of career support services, including resume writing assistance, job searching and networking, interviewing skills, and comprehensive job placement assistance. While the school cannot guarantee employment upon graduation, ICH instructors and Career Services staff consistently seek to assist students with employment opportunities prior to and after graduation.
