Course description

If you're an animal lover, and would like to learn more about the best and most effective ways to care for a wide range of animals, then the Animal Care - Level 3 distance learning course is ideal. The course covers a variety of animal species, walking learners through key areas such as common diseases, different health treatments and inoculations, and good animal welfare practices. This course would be great for a pet owner, but would also be enormously useful to anyone who works with animals in a professional capacity (dog walker, kennels worker, veterinary assistant). It would be perfect as a piece of CPD (Continuing Professional Development), or as an initial training package.

The course covers the following lessons:

  • Unit 1 History and Background
  • Unit 2- Safety, Health and Hygiene
  • Unit 3- Anatomy and Physiology
  • Unit 4- Animal First Aid
  • Unit 5 Dogs
  • Unit 6 Cats
  • Unit 7- Horses and Ponies
  • Unit 8 Birds
  • Unit 9 Fish
  • Unit 10- Snakes and Lizards
  • Unit 11- Tortoises, Turtles and Terrapins
  • Unit 12- Insects and Amphibians
  • Unit 13- Hamsters, Gerbils, Rats and Mice
  • Unit 14- Ferrets and Pole Cats
  • Unit 15- Rabbits and Guinea Pigs
  • Unit 16 Wildlife
  • Unit 17- Animal Welfare

The course contains a number of assignments which your tutor will mark and give you valuable feedback on. We call these Tutor Marked Assignments (TMAs). You need only send the TMAs to your tutor for comment, not the self-assessment exercises which are also part of the course to help you gauge your progress. 

On successful completion of this course students will receive an accredited Level 3 Certificate Award.
