Distance Education Veterinary Technology Program (DEVTP)
Transforming assistants into credentialed technicians.
Improve careers, practices, and animal health.
Everything improves when veterinary assistants become credentialed technicians with associate’s degrees. The American Veterinary Medical Association Committee on Veterinary Technician Education and Activities-accredited Distance Education Veterinary Technology Program (DEVTP) helps veterinary assistants realize their full potential and grow their careers in as few as five semesters online, improving job satisfaction, productivity, and patient care.
Offered in conjunction with Cedar Valley College, DEVTP is the only AVMA-accredited, AAHA-recommended online veterinary technology program available, providing students with the opportunity to earn an associate’s degree while maintaining demanding schedules at work and home.
Program completion time will vary greatly, depending on the number of classes you take per term and the number of terms you enroll in per year. On average, full-time students graduate in five semesters, and part-time students graduate in three years. If you wish to take a semester off, you may do so and then re-enroll when you are ready.
Three terms are offered per year, beginning in January, May, and September. Each term is 12–14 weeks long, depending on the courses. All DEVTP courses are offered each term.
