What is Cat Tales ZTC About?
Dedication + Hard Work = Fantastic Future in the Profession of Zookeeping
From the first day, as a student in the ZTC program, you are surrounded by animals and the realities of the profession of Zookeeping. The first thing you learn in this program is that you do not "work with the animals"; you "work for the animals". You soon realize the key to the survival of any zoo is the public which visit that zoo. The impression made on the public is shaped by not only the collection of animals on exhibit, but by the little things. The little things encompass even the smallest details: trash in the parking lot, dirty restrooms, weeds in the flower beds, poor signage, or even dirty uniforms. Depending on where you are hired after graduation, you may find your job title may be only caring for a particular group of animals at a large well funded facility. On the other hand you may be expected to care for the grounds in your exhibit area or be asked to help in the expansion of the actual exhibit itself.
These factors are why the program is designed to teach every aspect of the profession. This provides you, as you enter the "job hunt" after graduation, with the maximum advantage over the other individuals competing for the same position. This is also why graduates from Cat Tales Zoological Training Center are the people in highest demand and are the first to be considered for positions in the profession.
If Zookeeping is what you really want to do, then Cat Tales is, without a doubt, the best place to start.
It is interesting to note that the ONLY persons ever to say something negative about the school have been those individuals that could not make the grade and either quit or were dropped by the instructors. We are proud of the fact that not everyone makes it through the program. In fact 1 out of 3, on average, will quit within the first 60 days. The reasons are simple: a lack of dedication, thinking they were more important that the animals, or a basic tendency to just be lazy!* If you have any of these problems, then save your money and everyone's time by not bothering to enroll.
*(NOTE: not every student to leave the program fits these categories. There have been students who have had to drop out for personal reasons usually involving personal illness or that of a close family member. In many cases they return at a later date to successfully complete the program.)
So, after what you just read, ask yourself if you are willing to work hard and make a commitment to the animal care profession and if you answer YES, then click on the link below and we welcome you to the best school in the business.
