We will continue to post upcoming classes here on our schedule for remotes. Please check and find one in your area to attend, or consider hosting one for your surrounding area.

If anyone wishes to host a class or two (combining 2-3 courses usually works best) just call 979-542-5010 or email info@txacademyaco.com. We must have at least 14 days advance notice as to notify DSHS of all pending remotes and make arrangements. We are looking forward to continuing to serve the dedicated men and women in the animal care and control field.

As of this date, 17 August, 2018, TAACO will no longer be offering classes at the Giddings facility.

Unfortunately, at this time the TFA (130 Hr) course will no longer be offered. However, we will continue to offer the BASIC ANIMAL CARE TECH (36 HRS) remotely. This course is geared more for shelter/animal care techs to have the basic knowledge starting out. It is open to the public.

However, since we have had a great number of positive comments on our training, and a voice of great concern about TAACO CLOSING with there being very few options for ACOs/ACTs to obtain professional and affordable CE training, TAACO’s trained and qualified Staff will continue to offer REMOTE CLASSES, as requested, in every area of the state.

It's very simple and cost effective, for you to have us come (as we have the past 14 years) and bring anyone of our 23 DSHS approved courses to your department/area. You just provide a classroom setting, assist us in announcing/advertising the class to your area and have a minimum of 10-12 students attend per class. The cost is usually on a per student basis, but a contract-group rate may be available. Of course, sometimes mileage, per-diem, lodging MAY be a factor in some cases. As always we want you to get the most bang for the buck.

Thank you and God bless you all for allowing us to serve you (some of you numerous times) over the past 15 years. It has been a pleasure.
