Our Veterinary Technology program is currently accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Committee on Veterinary Technician Education and Activities (CVTEA).
What does this mean 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 program are eligible to take the Veterinary Technician National Exam (VTNE). In most states, passing the VTNE is one of the steps necessary to becoming licensed or credentialed as a veterinary technician. Generally, licensed/credentialed veterinary technicians can provide additional care to animals. Achieving the VTNE certification also looks good to employers!
Our campus also has institutional accreditation through the Accrediting Comission of Career Schools and Colleges. The address, telephone number, and website of the Accrediting Comission of Career Schools and Colleges are 2101 Wilson Boulevard, Suite 302, Arlington, VA 22201, (703) 247-4212, www.accsc.org.
