The Veterinary Technology Program at Massasoit Community College is a 2-year comprehensive program leading to an associate degree in applied science. The program aims to prepare students to excel in a career as a veterinary technician in a variety of animal healthcare fields by instilling comprehensive knowledge, technical, and critical thinking skills. It also prepares students to sit for the Veterinary Technician National Exam (VTNE). The VTNE is a computer-based exam required for veterinary technician credentialing in most states and provinces.

Massasoit Community College is pleased to announce that our Veterinary Technology Program has been granted accreditation by the American Veterinary Medical Association Committee on Veterinary Technician Education and Activities (AVMA CVTEA). Graduates are required to sit for and pass the VTNE to earn the title of credentialed veterinary technician in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as well as most states across the country.
