Bridging New Skills and Career Advancement with Penn Foster

This year, Innovetive Petcare introduced Penn Foster to our suite of employee educational benefits. Penn Foster College is nationally accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC) and offers one of only eight AVMA-CTVEA fully accredited distance learning programs in the country for veterinary technicians. This recognized partnership allows Innovetive Petcare to provide a higher level of care to patients and is a testament of our commitment to enhanced training for technicians and practice managers. Penn Foster gives our team members an opportunity to learn new skills and advance their careers while paving the way for professional growth and tenure across our network of practices. Innovetive Petcare hospitals even offer sponsorships in addition to negotiated rates.

Innovetive employees can choose between the Veterinary Practice Management Undergraduate Certificate Program, which offers team members the opportunity to earn the formal education requirement for the Certified Veterinary Practice Management (CVPM) Exam or the AVMA-CVTEA accredited Veterinary Technician Associate Degree. Both are self-paced, online programs, allowing individuals to achieve the fundamentals that further their career in the veterinary industry and increase the ability to provide outstanding animal care.

This month, we congratulate Barbie Hernandez, Sharon Quintero, and Yaelin Santiago-Paez. All three of these amazing individuals have displayed a passion for their patients and clients that reminds you why we are in the business of healing animals. They care deeply about Doral Centre Animal Hospital and helping their team achieve next level patient treatment. Their Regional Operations Manager, Josh Jasper, is “privileged to help them on their journey to becoming Certified Veterinary Technicians.”

Sarah Suber and Jordan Zellmer of Hernando Animal Clinic love their team, their patients, and their career. They are so dedicated to improving and being the best technician they can be for themselves and the people around them. Their dedication and intensity are clear and we are excited to help them achieve their goal of being a Certified Veterinary Technician. These two represent the best of the industry.

Jeanne Henderson has infectious enthusiasm for veterinary medicine that is core to the culture of Lange Animal Hospital. She is passionate about learning and personal development and we are proud to support her in her next career step as a Certified Veterinary Technician.
