What does "Accredited" Really Mean?

The term accredited when used in reference to an educational program or school means that a third party has deemed the program or school to have met or exceeded the organizations standards. In the case of veterinary technician schools this means that the American Veterinary Medicine Association has determined that the standards of the school or their vet tech program meets their standards and guidelines.

This is important because many states require graduates of vet tech programs sit for the Veterinary technician national exam before issuing the student their certification to practice as a vet tech and the only way you can sit for the exam is if you attended an accredited program or school.

While every state sets different guidelines for certification most states do require that the VTNE be part of the certification process. Which means that you need to have sat for and passed this exam to be a practicing veterinary technician in most states. If the school you choose to attend is not among the accredited veterinary technician schools your ability to practice, as a vet tech will be severely limited.
