The Distance Education Veterinary Technology Program (DEVTP) helps transform veterinary assistants into technicians. Endorsed by AAHA and AVMA-accredited, this respected program has been educating future veterinary technicians since 2001, offering advantages for both students and the practices that employ them.

Benefits for students:

  • Increase income potential and career opportunities with an associate’s degree
  • Prepare to take the Veterinary Technician National Examination (VTNE)
  • Work full-time while earning your degree with online courses and cooperative work experience
  • Finish faster—full-time students can graduate in as few as five semesters, and part-time students can graduate in as few as three years
  • Take advantage of financial aid opportunities (available to those who qualify)

Benefits for veterinary practices:

  • Educate full-time employees—DEVTP’s flexible online format allows students to work for you while earning their degree
  • Equip team members to perform more complex tasks, making them more valuable to your staff and practice
  • Reduce employee turnover—promote loyalty to your practice by offering professional growth opportunities as an employee benefit
  • Improve the quality of care your hospital provides 

Registration for summer and fall semesters just opened! Summer courses begin May 12, 2017, and fall courses begin August 21, 2017. Visit devtp.org for more information.
