Curated by Candace Sousa, DVM, DABVP, DACVD, the mission of this group is to allow individuals to post cases for discussion.

Curious about what our training looks like? Want to see the interface of our Tech community? Watch this video for a sneak peek of our Technician subscription.
IGNITE's curriculum for Technicians has been designed for real life in a veterinary hospital in 2020. We embrace problems that Technicians face everyday and invite them to think differently to become more talented at their craft and support their practice's success.
IGNITE's learning videos are funny and informative, which makes for sticky learning. Watch the video and see for yourself!
Another element to IGNITE's unique learning is the mouse-on activities. Technicians are asked to match, drag-n-drop, and actively participate in each module.
Our leadership team made a goal at our annual meeting to implement monthly IGNITE CE for each Vet Tech. My lead Vet Tech really pushed for that extra training for her team and IGNITE was the perfect place for that.
I also use IGNITE in our monthly staff meetings, and our individual monthly department meetings. We pinpoint an area we are struggling in, or have more opportunity to improve in, and find a training video on IGNITE that can help us. It is really nice for them to hear someone other than me and get another perspective on an issue.
IGNITE's Technician subscription is such an amazing tool for the Technicians in my hospital. Our manager utilizes this tool by requiring us to watch a minimum of one video per month. We typically choose a topic based on the cases our clinic has seen recently, and use it as a learning opportunity to learn more about a real case that we had recently had experience with. This helps us to further understand the treatments and recommendations for those pets, as well as explain them to concerned owners. It has been an amazing tool to have access to!
