AVMA-Accredited Program

All Veterinary Technology programs at our campuses are currently accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Committee on Veterinary Technician Education and Activities (CVTEA).      

You may wonder what this means for you. The AVMA says the following about their accreditation: 

"Accreditation by the AVMA Council on Education (COE) and Committee on Veterinary Technician Education and Activities (CVTEA) represents the highest standard of achievement for veterinary medical education in the United States. Institutions that earn accreditation confirm their commitment to quality and continuous improvement through a rigorous and comprehensive peer review.”

Because of this programmatic accreditation, graduates of the Vet Tech Institute's veterinary technology programs are eligible to take the Veterinary Technician National Exam (VTNE).  In most states, passing the VTNE is one of the steps necessary to become licensed or credentialed in the state as a veterinary technician. Licensed/credentialed veterinary technicians generally can provide additional care to animals. Achieving the VTNE certification also looks good to employers! 

Each of our campuses also has institutional accreditation.
