YTI Career Institute will start a veterinary technician program in February 2013 at the York campus, which will be the only veternary technician training program within 50 miles of the school, according to a news release.

The 21-month program will prepare graduates for employment as a veterinary technician in veterinary practices, universities, research facilities, pharmaceutical companies, and zoos, among other areas, the release says.

The addition of the program comes with a 3,00-square-foot building renovation and laboratory buildout to the York campus facility, the release says. Portions of the program will also be taught at Leg Up Farm in Mount Wolf and White Oak Farm in the York area, where students will learn and practice skills with large animals.

Temple University Harrisburg will start a certificate of learning and leadership in urban education, to be offered in York at a 3Cord Inc. location, according to a news release.

The program will focus on urban education reform through school-community partnerships, with an emphasis on developing the skills necessary to engage in collaborative work with diverse groups in urban environments, the release says.

Topics will include urban educational issues, reform initiatives, urban communities, and more. Applications are being accepted through Dec. 15.

The certificate is offered in an accelerated format, so students will be able to complete the program in less than eight months, the release says. The courses are transferable to a Temple Master’s degree program.
