Yuba College teaches all aspects of veterinary technology.

We are a traditional route, two year AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association) accredited program through the CVTEA (Committee on Veterinary Technician Education and Activities) where students acquire the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to become a successful RVT. Upon completion, students receive an Associate of Science Degree in Veterinary Technology and are eligible to take the Veterinary Technician National Exam (VTNE).

We take new students every year with the application deadline being March 15th. Prerequisites must be completed or in progress at the time of application. Students must first register with Yuba College and then follow the enrollment steps found here on our website.
Although our program is rigorous with heavy course loads, you will have a rewarding career once complete. Students take a variety of courses including large animal and exotic medicine with hands on labs to diversify their knowledge and prepare for the VTNE. This program is best suited for students who have an interest in science and medicine that are able to self-direct and be organized. Lastly, students should enjoy working with animals great and small.
Many of our graduates are employed in the veterinary field by the time they graduate. Check out our job board for postings sent to us.
