Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree

Most importantly, graduates of DEVTP receive an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree from an AVMA-CVTEA-accredited program of veterinary technology. By obtaining this degree, graduates qualify for any registration, licensing or certification exams needed to become a credentialed veterinary technician—including the VTNE. Taking and passing the VTNE, administered by American Association of Veterinary State Boards (AAVSB), is a final step in becoming a credentialed veterinary technician.

"The instructor was incredibly helpful with the many questions I had during this course and was very prompt in answering them all."
– Erika Pitts, DEVTP student
