"Just completed my Veterinary Assistant course and it was amazing. Studies Animal Care as well as Animal Diseases, and the course was so enjoyable and easy to understand. The course questions were well structured and well done. Truly an enjoyable experience. Looking forward to being able to put my newly acquired knowledge to practice hopefully soon." - Arina
