Hello. I am currently searching for a school that offers a Veterinary Science Technology - (A.A.S.) program online. Their are no schools in my area that offer this so on-campus and relocating is something i cannot do. I work in a vet office as a receptionist and i want to grow and become a vet tech. I have done alot of reaserch and have come up with fraud schools that arnt accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).
Any school is fine as long as they dont ask for frequent on campus attendance ( can do up to 10 days for testing and neccessary reasons and has to be 2 hours from albany, ny. ) Any help or information would be greatly appreicated!!
i seriously doubt you will find one that is online. You might can take your core curriculum online but the rest is labs, You have to be in class to pass the labs. Its a lot of hands on stuff.
Here is a listing of colleges that offer the Veterinary Technician Curriculum in NY. Your best bet is to find one close to you and call them or go visit and talk to them about what you want to do.
