Students will spend the majority of their clinical experience in various private and corporate clinical practices. Both full-time, four semester and part-time six semester options are available. This curriculum is designed to prepare the student for the national board exam and licensure as a veterinary technician (LVMT).
The Vol State Veterinary Technology program was granted provisional accreditation in 2013 by the AVMA. Graduates of this program are eligible to take the national board exam to become licensed veterinary technicians.
