Veterinary Medical Terminology
Veterinary Medical Terminology provides a visual approach to learning medical terms and understanding the basics of veterinary medicine. A systematic process of breaking down medical terms into their component parts allows readers to comprehend the root medical concepts and apply critical thinking skills when faced with new and unfamiliar medical terminology. Case studies exemplify how medical terminology would be experienced in an actual veterinary practice.
The software provided with this course makes review of the concepts fun through the use of interactive games and audio pronunciation of the terms.

First Aid for Dogs and Cats
When your dog or cat is injured or sick, accurate assessment of the situation and quick treatment is vital to recovery. It is important to be prepared for even the most common injuries and have the necessary supplies available at all times. Our First Aid for Dogs and Cats course provides a comprehensive guide to keep your pet healthy. This course covers medications, proper dosages, common illnesses and injuries, such as burns, breathing problems, wound care and much more.

Farm Animals and Their Health
Many people are returning to their roots these days and venturing into one of the oldest professions - farming - but on a smaller scale. Small scale farming is a viable source of side income as well as a great family food source. This course will provide you with resources and information needed to start raising, caring for and profiting from small animals and cattle. You will gain information about every aspect of raising farm animals, from selecting the right animals to harvesting and butchering.

Infection Prevention
Workers in many industries are regularly exposed to infectious agents. In health care, workers should practice universal precautions to prevent the spread of disease to themselves and others. Workers in other industries, though, can also inadvertently spread disease to customers and patrons. This course discusses infection control techniques that help prevent others from being infected by diseases and illnesses.

Effective Professional Communications
Communication is a process of transferring information from one person to another. Communications is the cement that holds workplaces together and ensures that organizations are productive, profitable, and successful. People tend to think of communications as only the words they say or write, but it is so much more than that. Communications includes the environment it is used in, how words are said, non-verbal and cultural aspects, and how the communicator’s personality affects their style. To be an effective professional, workers should understand the various elements that make up communication.

Every year, many workers suffer back injuries caused when they improperly lift and carry heavy loads.

This course discusses several tactics to help workers properly lift and carry heavy loads.
