Thanks in advance:)

Olds College: Exercise Rider Jockey Training Program?
Although I am on the go with Online Classes, working towards either a Certificate in Equine Science or a Diploma in Equine Science, I am considering the Exercise Rider Jockey Training Program at Olds College for next year (January 2017). I'd be coming from out of Province but have family in Edmonton currently.

I was wondering if anyone on here has done this program or known someone who has done this program within the last few years. How was it? What did you love? What did you hate? Does the College offer residence for this program? Did you learn a lot? What did you find to be the hardest part of the program? Any tips or advice? What would you recommend for fitness training/preparation? For mental preparation? Was the course primarily male or female dominant?

Thank You

Animal Health Technologist / Vet Technician?
Hi Everyone,

I wanted to know if there are any students on here who are doing or who have done
Vet Tech / Animal Health Tech.
Where did you go? How much was it? Did you like it? Did it prepare you for your job? Was it 2 year or longer course? Was their options for Equine classes? What are you currently doing? Do you have any recommendations to help get a better job in the field? 

From what we were told in our Co-op class, In NB, the average Vet Tech makes around $12.50/$13.00. However, I don't mind relocating. What does the average Vet Tech in your Area make?

I'm currently on a "work break" after graduating High School in June. I plan to work for a solid year or two, to save up as much as I can before heading away to University. The less debt I can come out with the better, right? Haha.
I plan to do Vet Tech, focusing in Livestock/Equine. Afterwards get an Equine-extension through University of Guelph.
However I'm not quite sure I have decided where to do my Vet-Tech program at. I am in New Brunswick, so I was thinking Dalhousie University in Truro (Former NSAC) as they are located on the Agricultural Campus and have the option for an Equine Elective. 

Is there anything I could do to help prepare me for Vet Tech? 
I am planning on trying to get some Shadowing/Volunteer work done at a Vet Office starting this upcoming Spring.

I graduated meeting requirements for Dalhousie*, my main course grades are as follows:

English 11 - 82
English 12 - 83*
Biology 11 - 89
Biology 12 - 94*
Chemistry 11 - 64
Chemistry 12 - 94*
Foundations Math 11 - 64
Foundations Math 12 - 87*
Pre-Calculus 11 - 60
Agricultural Science 12 - 88
Co-operative Education 12 - 90 (Equine Placement)

I also took other courses such as History, Graphic Art, Intro to Accounting, Leadership, Nutrition, Wellness, Family Dynamics and Culinary. 

How do requirements differ for your program?
I would love to take other Equine Courses as well, as that is were I really want to focus. Maybe ending up in Ontario or Alberta in a Equine-Vet Clinic. 

I'd love to hear from you; anyone who has, is or even knows someone in Vet Tech/Animal Health Program, or in other Equine Science courses. How it's worked out and any advice you have for me.
