The Community for Accredited Online Schools has come out with rankings for the best veterinary technician schools in the United States. Looking at online and on-campus programs at two-year and four-year schools, The Community for Accredited Online Schools determined which ones have the best overall value for future vet tech students.
“Job outlook projections show veterinary technician positions growing much faster than the national average through 2024,” said Doug Jones, CEO and founder of the community for Accredited Online Schools. “Schools on these lists are not only providing quality veterinary technician programs, but are also making an extra effort to help students land a job after graduation.”
According to AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org, the vet tech schools they looked at had to meet certain requirements.
"Schools must meet specific baseline requirements to be considered for a spot on the Best Veterinary Technician Schools ranking. All institutions must hold regional accreditation and be registered as public or private not-for-profit entities. Schools are also required to provide career placement services to their students. Once a school’s eligibility is determined, the Community for Accredited Online Schools scores and ranks each based on more than a dozen data points, including graduation rates, student-teacher ratios and financial aid availability, to determine the overall Best Schools in the U.S."
