    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    YTI overall has decent circulum. however, the instructors are very disorganized and follow rules differential. the program is disorganized and the instructors do not respect the student's schedules or hat they have been previously told. For example, when I first started YTI i was told there would be choices for our kennel duty shifts to take care of our boarded animals. Our program director at the time, along with our Animal care specialist then told the students we were obligated to do only 6:30 am shifts , along with mandatory weekend shifts. I found this to be an extensive issue, seeing as how alot of our students live the utmost 1 to 2 hours away and used our weekends "off" to work and maintain our life styles. In our orientation, weekend kennel duty shifts were never mentioned. I have multiple additional reasons that made my experience here at YTI not enjoyable.

    Course highlights:

    I learned basic skills such as blood draws. However, YTI had a stritct " syringe technique " that was required to be used. I was working at a veterinary hospital and was struggling with that basic skill. I was not successful at the technique YTI was requiring us to use because my hand was too small for my fingers to extend to pull back the plunger of the syringe. The hospital i was working at became very frustrated that YTI would teach in such manner, as was I. My veterinarians, office manager and direct technical supervisor were extremely disappointed in YTI because they were suppose to be guiding, teaching and encouraging, not dictating. The hospital i worked for at the time, and currently still do, encouraged me to preform the skill how i felt most comfortable. When an invasive skill like that of a blood draw is being preformed, it is best for the patient, technician and everyone involved to be calm and comfortable. That ensures safety and efficiency. in 2 days I was drawing blood like i have been my whole life thanks to my veterinary hospital.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    do not rely on the book answers for lab animal. the professor will make up answers.
