Not Your Grandma's Classroom
IGNITE's curriculum for Technicians has been designed for real life in a veterinary hospital in 2018. 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.
Courses and Videos
IGNITE's learning videos are funny and informative, which makes for sticky learning.
Not Just Staring at a Screen
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.
