It takes a lot more than a love of animals to be able to take care of them, but love is definitely the first step. Let BIFE’s course in animal care guide you through the many technical aspects of handling animals in the workplace. You’ll learn about anatomy and physiology, grooming, animal welfare, and animal behaviour; and you’ll have plenty of opportunties to practice your new skills with the work experience necessary in completing the course. Take your career, and your love of our animal friends, to the next level.
