Vet Technician Schools

Currently, individuals wishing to become vet techs are faced with a couple of critical facts to consider before pursing such a career. There is a nationwide shortage of qualified veterinary technicians and technologists, and as such, the demand means job seekers are in the driver's seat, able to receive great salaries, benefits, and working conditions.

However, the reason for the shortfall in vet techs is because of the limited number of qualified, accredited vet technician schools available. Even though new schools are opening all the time, there simply are not enough graduates from vet tech training programs to satisfy the need of employers such as veterinary offices and private clinics.

Most techs opt to pursue a two year course of study from a community or junior college program accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association, or AVMA. There are about one hundred and sixty such programs, spread out across forty-five states.
