Accreditation and Licensure
The Vet Tech Program at GCC received full accreditation, effective September, 2017. This means the program has met the rigorous standards set forth by the AVMA. These standards apply to all Veterinary Technology programs throughout the US and Canada. The program will be reviewed again in 2022.

New York and many other states require that you be licensed in order to be employed as a veterinary technician. In New York, this means that you must graduate from an AVMA accredited program and pass the Veterinary Technician National Exam. Our program will prepare you for both the hands-on skills that you will need in clinical practice as well as the didactic learning required for passing the VTNE.
