Littleton, Colorado

This travel information is provided to assist you with making your travel arrangements. You may wish to consult other online resources (Expedia, Travelocity, Kayak, etc.) to research area hotels and compare rates. Please do not make any non-refundable travel plans until your course registration has been confirmed.

Class Details: Please check the schedule for each day of your particular course as times can vary based on the instructor and location. We ask that you schedule your travel so that you do not arrive late to class or need to leave early. Students who do not attend a full day of class will not receive any CE credit hours for that day and may have to return to make up the missing hours.

We will be doing labs on the floor as well as outdoors so please dress comfortably (scrubs, shorts, sandals, tank tops). The classroom may get chilly at times so bring a light jacket or long-sleeve shirt. Also, allow enough room in your suitcase for your text and lab book as well as any materials you may purchase.

Students are welcome to bring their (well-behaved) dogs to class. We require proof of rabies, distemper and parvovirus or a titer. Because our classes are held inside a busy veterinary hospital where contagious dogs may be, we strongly recommend your dog be vaccinated against bordetella, CIV and leptospirosis as well. Please treat for fleas and heartworm prior to attending class. If your dog is coming to class, please bring a towel or bed and a water bowl. Please contact [email protected] if you have further questions about bringing your dog.

Note: If you are attending the Canine Rehabilitation Veterinary Nurse course (formerly called Canine Rehabilitation Assistant), bring your Intro lab book with anatomy notes and color photos with you.

We would like to remind our international students that it is their responsibility to obtain the documents required for travel to the United States. This process has slowed down considerably since 9/11, so check waiting times and plan ahead! In additional to a valid passport, residents from countries that are not exempt from a visa requirement will need to apply for a Business Visitor Visa (B-1). For up-to-date information, check with the U.S. Consulate in your country, or go to the Visas section of the U.S. State Department website, https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en.html.
