BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. – Arc Educates, a social enterprise of the non-profit Arc Broward, is at the moment recruiting college students for his or her newly launched and accredited Animal Care Certificate Program.
The 15-week program, scheduled to start Sep. 26, will practice people with disabilities and people with different obstacles to employment to present care that promotes and maintains the well-being of animals.
Courses embrace animal care fundamentals, animal first help and security and animal habits. The Animal Care Certificate Program has obtained interim accreditation approval from the Accrediting Council on Continuing Education and Training and is licensed by the Florida Department of Education Commission for Independent Education.
Animal lover and Arc Broward COO, Julie Price, got here up with the thought to launch the animal care program. She observed a spot in instructional alternatives within the subject and ongoing curiosity from the people the group serves.
“This program will give our students the tools and hands-on training to potentially gain employment at a pet groomer, veterinary clinic, doggy day care, animal shelter and other similar places,” she mentioned.
The Animal Care program is coupled with an externship on the native non-profit, no-kill animal shelter Abandoned Pet Rescue.
“We are excited for the opportunity to partner with Arc Broward to support this important educational initiative,” mentioned Kara Starzyk, shelter supervisor. “Abandoned Pet Rescue hopes that students enrolled in this hands-on training will develop technical skills for future job opportunities and gain a deeper understanding and compassion for pets in need.”
Arc Educates operates three further accredited packages in entry-level Culinary Arts, Material Handling and Human Services.
