Want to work with animals every day? Ready to turn your love for animals into a lifelong career? This online animal health care course is the perfect entry into the world of animal care, equipping you with critical knowledge, skills, and an industry-recognised qualification that will help your job applications get noticed.

The Animal Health Care Certificate covers a range of introductory topics, like:

  • Animal charities and societies
  • Caring for animals (dogs, cats, freshwater fish, horses, reptiles, amphibians, rodents, rabbits)
  • Common health issues (domestic and farm animals)
  • Basic first aid
  • Routine health care
  • Domestic animal rehabilitation
  • Animal behaviours
  • Maintaining animal health
  • Supporting animal wellbeing
  • A day in the life of a veterinarian
  • Administration and safety in a veterinary service environment

With this online animal health care course, you’ll be able to start your certificate at any time (no need to wait for a new semester!) and study alongside your existing work schedule and family commitments.

Following the completion of this animal health care course, you’ll be able to apply for entry-level roles working with animals or continue your studies in the field. Or simply enjoy caring for your own pets with greater knowledge and confidence!

What can qualifications in animal health lead to?

With an animal care certificate, you could apply for a range of entry-level roles, like farm hand, animal carer, pet shop assistant, kennel attendant, and animal welfare officer. You might assist at a farm, wildlife reserve, park, zoo, animal refuge, or animal hospital. With further studies, you could work as a veterinary assistant, animal hospital assistant, and even a veterinarian.
