  • In-depth canine anatomy and organ systems
  • Introduction to kinesiology

Once you are ready, there will be a final written exam to take, in addition to a video submission of your practicum. Any student is welcome to schedule a time on-site at our Littleton, CO campus to complete this practical in place of submitting a video. The final step is the post coursework in the form of case studies. These act as your “real-life” experience, and this is how you will get your final certification.
