Veterinary Tech Program Information Sessions Scheduled At Cleveland State

Thursday, March 08, 2012
Cleveland State Community College and Chattanooga State Community College will be co-hosting information sessions about the Veterinary Technology Program at Chattanooga State. Both sessions will be held on the Cleveland State campus Thursday, March 29, from 3-4 p.m. and again at 5:30-6:30 p.m. in Room 216 of the Science Building on Cleveland State’s campus. 

The sessions are designed for anyone interested in learning more about the educational requirements to become a licensed veterinary technician. Students will be able to see how they can begin coursework at Cleveland State in order to apply to the program at Chattanooga State. Graduates of the Veterinary Technology Program will receive an A.A.S. degree which permits them to take the Veterinary Technician National Board Exam which in turn will qualify the student to become a licensed veterinary technician. 

“This is a good opportunity for Cleveland State students to stay local and still take all of the general education courses that are required for the Chattanooga State program, as well as Intro to Vet Technology,” said Dr. Mitchell Rhea, dean of Math and Science at Cleveland State. 

For more information about this program, contact Dr. Rhea at CSCC at 478-6231 or Dr. Susie Matthews, program director at Chattanooga State, at 697-4733.
