Georgian Veterinary Technician Program Portal.

Are you interested in completing your Field Placement overseas? Consider traveling to Nepal to participate in AEI’s Dog Rescue Experience. This placement has been pre-approved by Georgian College to qualify as a Field Placement for students registered in the Veterinary Technician Program.

All of the AEI Experiences are available to you as a student, and then throughout your career as a Registered Veterinary Technician. You can gain valuable skills, confidence and experience helping animals around the world. With the exception of Dog Rescue in Nepal, these AEI Experiences will not qualify as an official Field Placement, however they all offer you the opportunity to travel, network and set yourself apart in a competitive field after graduation.

All of our placements have our volunteers directly taking part in the care and conservation of animals, both wild and domestic! Any experience of your choice would be beneficial for your CV and provide you with real world experience working with a variety of species.

AEI Experiences are non-structured placements – built around your interests, your particular skill set and your schedule. AEI Experiences are project-based, working with Placement Partners that are well established in their communities. We can develop a placement for you that will allow you to contribute to a valuable project and provide you with the opportunity to travel and experience the country in which you are visiting.
