When you take an instructor-led course, you meet online with an instructor and other students in a virtual classroom. Instructor-led courses utilize case-based learning and last six weeks. They offer one-on-one interaction with your instructor and may include preparatory reading, group discussions, and practical assignments. Each course offers up to 9 continuing education credits, as certified by Minnesota’s Board of Veterinary Medicine.
