Cedar Valley College offers Veterinary Technology both on-site and via distance learning courses accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), which partners with the college to offer the distance learning program.

The program operates a 32,000-square-foot teaching facility on the college campus that features a 170-acre stock farm with breeding herds for horses, cattle and goats.

The Vet Tech program includes:

  • Veterinary Technology Associate in Applied Sciences Degree, available both on-site and via distance learning.

Program graduates are eligible to take the Texas Examination for Registered Veterinary Technicians (RVT) and the Veterinary Technician National Examination. Both exams are required for registration in the state of Texas, and the Veterinary Technician National Examination is required for credentialing as a technician by several other states.
  • Small Animal Assisting Certificate, an on-site credit certificate that can be completed in two semesters.
  • Large Animal Assisting Certificate, an on-site credit certificate that can be completed in two semesters.
