The Royal Animal Health University Certification Course is a multi-modal approach to integrative health care and animal wellness for all students: animal lovers, industry professionals, veterinary technicians and veterinarians. The certification involves both virtual and hands-on learning and provides a certification in integrative animal care through RAHU.
What is different about our integrative healthcare approach and why learn with us?
We have been teaching pet lovers, industry professionals, techs and veterinarians for the last 20 years. Our dynamic educators bring expertise and enthusiasm as they present effective modalities and techniques for integrative health care.
There are 10 core modules and many electives available in the certification course. In completing this certification, students will develop a practical understanding of the natural causes of health for each species and the ability to navigate through the many healthcare options available for animals. This body of knowledge we will create a more educated and proactive healthcare partnership between veterinary caregivers, pet parents and the animal industry.
** Modules will be available December 2017. More details available upon registration. **
