Judith Said:How do I train for a career working with Service dogs?
We Answered:There's only one Seeing Eye dog center in the U.S. and it is in New Jersey. The others are called guide dog schools. The Seeing Eye is a guide dog school, but not all guide dog schools are the Seeing Eye, just as Ford produces cars, but not all cars produced are Fords.
There are at least 20 guide dog schools in the U.S. not counting the ones that aren't actually producing guides anymore.
Under U.S. law, a guide dog is a type of service dog.
"Service animal means any guide dog, signal dog, or other animal individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including, but not limited to, guiding individuals with impaired vision, alerting individuals with impaired hearing to intruders or sounds, providing minimal protection or rescue work, pulling awheelchair, or fetching dropped items." 28 CFR 36.104
That said, guide dog schools do typically have different requirements for their instructors largely because they've been around longer and tend to be more uniformly structured than other types of service dog programs. Programs like the Seeing Eye require instructor applicants to have a college degree in a related field such as ethology or social work. They also require a minimum of 3 years of experience.
There are many more other types of service dog programs than there are guide dog programs. Hundreds. This article on how to get a service dog includes references to several lists on the internet of service dog providers which could be used to find a school nearest to you.
But if you want the short answer on becoming a service dog trainer, apply at Bergin U. Credentials from that school would get you a job at nearly any service dog program in the country and should qualify you to start your own program if desired.
Most people do not train their own service dogs. At least not real service dogs. Few people have the skills to do advanced dog training and must acquire them. Unfortunately, because people are permitted to train their own service dogs and there is no federal regulation there are many who simply claim pets as service dogs and parade them around in public. The either don't care or don't understand the difference between pet training and the training of skilled working dogs. Then there are pet owners who aren't even disabled who lie about pets being service dogs just so they can take Fifi to the grocery store.
Elsie Said:Any one here a radiologist, X Ray tech, Ultrasound, Or any similar career???
We Answered:1. Went to Xray school after working as a medic. Needed a job that had better retirement possibilities, better pay and one a bit less hard on the body.
2. I have found that a lot of coworkers became interested in Radiology after having been a patient themselves.
3. I work in Interventional Rad. We do Angioplasty, Vertebroplasty, PICC lines, biopsy, etc. In and Out patients. Any other local hospital is always a competitor.
4. 2 yrs. Hospital based program.
5. It's a hospital.....stress basically sums it up.
6. You can't control everything, but nurses on the floor and patients don't seem to know that.
7. Phone calls are close to the top.
8. mid $20's / hr. Yes at eval. time
9. There are plenty of bosses and group leaders to make the decisions.
10. Room prep, put in orders, get patients prepped, assist Dr., complete post processing filming of images, put pt. chart together, discharge to home or room.

Cindy Said:Do i apply for higher position in my ambulance service career yet?
We Answered:two members of my family are paramedics.
they worked from PTS, through to technician to paramedics.
so my advise is stick with what your doing and move up as and when the positions become available, keeping your head in your books at all times.
Andrea Said:Anyone A Human Services Worker/Social Services Tech?
We Answered:If you posess a degree - or any alternative qualification - then you'll already be in advace of of the masses when it comes to looking for jobs. My buddy has a degree and he wasn't sure what direction to go with it, but he found some good tips on the website in the resource box below which helped him to settle that he wanted to be a lab assistant. There is loads of guidance on the website regarding alternative jobs.
