LLA for Veterinary and Animal Professionals - Dates, Times, and CEUs

Dates and Times

LLA Professional is taught for eight weeks in August and September, yearly.

Each class is two hours long and will be taught twice a week, i.e, the Tuesday class will be repeated on Thursday, so you can better fit your busy schedules and global time zones. You are welcome to attend either or both classes each week, throughout the class. Be sure to adjust your schedule for time zones. Links to time and date converters are below. I'm in Mountain Standard time.

Tuesdays @ 8 am MST (10 am EST; 9 am CST; 7 am PST)
Thursdays (repeat of Tuesday's class) @ 6 pm MST (8 pm EST; 7 pm CST 5 pm PST)
