Can you get a veterinary technician degree online?
Yes, you can. Just make sure you’re taking part in a program that has been accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association, as they are the institution in charge of giving licenses to future veterinary technicians in the country.
In order to become a veterinary technician, you’ll need an Associate’s degree in the field. But if the training program you took part in doesn’t meet the requirements set by the American Veterinary Medical Association, your Associate’s degree is very likely going to be deemed worthless. Or you’ll need to take extra classes in order to fill the gaps in your curriculum before you can take their license exam.
Luckily, finding accredited online courses isn’t too hard. The association has accredited over 200 veterinary technician courses in the US, and a decent amount of those were online courses. If you are looking for online vet tech program recommendations, try this link.
