New CTS Courses for Careers in Animal Care

AGR1040 Animal Basics and AGR2020 Animal Husbandry and Welfare, two new courses that fit it into the Alberta Education’s Program of Studies are now available online!

The courses are set up as virtual apprenticeships where the students select the environment in which they want to work: kennel, stable or farm. They then choose one of the five different species of animal to learn about: dogs, cats, horses, beef cattle or sheep. The self-guided course requires students to complete seven learning tasks in the areas of responsible animal care, animal health, humane animal handling skills and standards of care.
