From Shark Handling to learning the tricks of plumbing aquarium tanks with PVC pipe, OCCC’s Aquarium Science Program is a program like no other in the nation, or the world.

Aquariums and zoos from around the planet turn to the AQS program for experts in the feeding and care of aquatic animals of all sorts. Our programs include 1-year certificate and 2-year degree programs. Many of our certificate students come to the AQS having already earned a four-year degree in the biological sciences.

Applications are now open for next year’s AQS program. Click here to get started, or here to jump to the AQS page on this website. Be sure to also like the program’s Facebook┬ápage.
