AVCPT was granted provisional approval by the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America in November of 2011. Full recognition status of AVCPT should be granted once the first credentialing examination has been given and we have a candidate(s) pass the examination. We are pleased to become the eleventh veterinary technician specialty recognized and to be able to have potential candidates such as you help our specialty grow.
