This course will also discuss strategies for dealing with conflict among coworkers.
Method of Delivery: Primarily web-based exercises, textbook, projects/assignments, and examinations (on-line or paper). The exercises will be completed on line and submitted to the instructor. Supplemental material will be offered on line as content (in addition to the textbook). Quizzes and exams will be sent to a proctor. The proctor must be a veterinarian, an accredited veterinary technician (RVT, LVT, or CVT), or an educator/teacher at a school, college, or university. The proctor will return the completed exam to the instructor for grading.
