I have a question for you Rainheart: I did not do online classes but I also heard about online vet tech programs. My question is and that is just out of curiosity: how does your coworker do her lab requirements? Does it count what she does at the clinic and gets like a homework to do? I had so many labs for different subjects on blood drawing, IV catheters, exams, injections, x-rays, anesthesia, bandaging, suturing, learning how to do CBCs and white blood cell counts manually, etc. etc. We always had dogs and cats from the humane society at the school for several weeks to practise on and then they went back to be adopted, because they had their shots and so on. When it came down to classes about laboratory animals, we had mice, rats, gerbils, hamster, bunnies and guinea pigs to practise blood drawing etc. For the large animal classes we went to a teaching farm and worked with the horses and livestock there. We also had to do two internships, one in the summer in the first year and one during the fall/winter semester, the second year.
Also we had to attend a lot of lectures in other places and visit different facilities such as specialty clinics.
I have always wondered how online schooling would work with all that has to be learned.
