Vet techs possess a wide range of clinical expertise! 

Credentialed veterinary technicians study 2-4 years for an associates or bachelor's degree in veterinary technology in an accredited program while simultaneously gaining hands-on clinical experience. These accredited programs are overseen by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AMA) in the United States and Canada. Graduates of an AVMA-accredited program must pass the Veterinary Technician National Examination (or VTNE) to earn the title of registered veterinary technician (RVT), licensed veterinary technician (LVT), certified veterinary technician (VT), and licensed veterinary medical technician (LVMT), depending on the state. 

The hard work doesn't stop there! 
Vet techs are also required to complete regular continuing education courses to maintain their credentialing. Some even go on to specialize in dental technology, internal medicine, equine veterinary nursing, emergency and critical care, behavior, anesthesia, or zoological medicine.
