This professional training is available for either, those currently working and the aspiring Animal Care Technician and/or Animal Control Officer. Professional training is a must for a career in this demanding field.

Beginning January 14, 2013, the Basic Animal Care Technician (BACT) course is being offered for the State of New Mexico. The 40 hour course will be offered through Central New Mexico Community College in Albuquerque.

This training is approved by the State of New Mexico Sheltering Board and the BACT’s curriculum includes five important aspects of working in the Animal Care and Control field. You will also test for and obtain a certification in humane animal euthanasia, which is required by the state.

Subjects such as, animal handling & restraint, small animal anatomy, parasitology, pharmacology, recognizing and treating common diseases, Zoonosis-rabies control and some practical hands on training are included.

If a student is already currently employed in the Animal Care and Control field, or seeking to start a career, this is an awesome course to better prepare for performing the duties more humanely, efficiently and safer. Also, this course is good for anyone that simply wants to learn how to properly care for their own animals.

There is a real demand for trained Animal Care Techs to work either as an Animal Control Officer on the street (usually employed by a city/county), a “Vet” assistant in an animal shelter, at a humane society, or veterinary clinic.

If you love animals and have a desire to work with them, the BACT course is for you. The BACT is a very interesting and enjoyable learning opportunity.

The BACT is taught by very knowledgeable, qualified and trained staff that has over 30 years of combined animal care and control experience. This course is taught with a practical, day-to-day and hands on method.

All the learning materials are included. The only requirement to attend is be at least 17 years of age.


This class is Monday and Friday.
