TREASURE COAST -- Veterinarian Richard Flora, Dean of St. Petersburg College's Veterinary Technology Program will speak about his school's veterinary technology distance program when he visits the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County from 4 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 22.
St. Petersburg College's versatile program allows students to obtain their Associate in Science degree in the community where they live. Students can combine their distance education courses with internships to better accommodate work and family obligations. During the talk, Dr. Flora will explain admission requirements, application deadlines, typical coursework and internships.
Credits earned through distance study are equal to credits earned on campus and the program is approved by The American Veterinary Medical Association.
According to the school's website, "The difference between local and distance learning is in the method of delivery, not in the content or the desired outcomes."
This talk is free of charge and open to the public. Guests are encouraged to reserve seating by calling The Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County at (772) 388-3331, ext. 18. The Humane Society is located at 6230 77th St. in Vero Beach.
