Roads to Certification Workbook

RVT certification is more accessible now than ever before. A regulation passed December 23, 1994 allows veterinary assistants with 4,416 hours of directed clinical practice experience and 20 semester units, 30 quarter units, or 300 hours of specific education to apply for the RVT examination through the alternate route.

This workbook is designed to help candidates prepare for taking the Registered Veterinary Technician Examination using the Alternate Route to certification. The cost is $20.00 for each workbook plus tax, shipping and handling.

It fully outlines the requirements as well as lists sample test question, suggested reading materials and the Veterinary Medical Boards Task List (to be completed by the supervising veterinarian).

Three easy ways to order the workbook:

  • Online
  • Download a PDF form for emailing, mailing, or faxing with payment
  • Call 800.655.2862
