Registered Veterinary Technicians

Courses offered through the School of Veterinary Medicine Center for Continuing Education, University of California, Davis can be applied toward the 20 hours of continuing education that RVTS are required to complete every two years.

The demands placed on today’s veterinary medical team for expert patient care have never been greater. Your procedures and techniques need to be updated frequently to keep up with the rapid changes in knowledge, materials, and technology occurring in veterinary medicine.

Continuing veterinary medical education is a good source of the newest methods, materials, and procedures to enable you to deliver quality care worthy of your reputation and standards.

RVT certification is more accessible than ever with “The Alternate Route”. Since 1994 unregistered veterinary assistants with three years of on-the-job training and 20 semester units, 30 quarter units, or 300 hours of specific continuing veterinary medical education, can apply for the RVT exam.  We are committed to providing world class RVT/Veterinary Assistant education.

While the following programs are produced with the practicing veterinarian in mind, we welcome technicians to enroll in them for CE credit as well.
