The AVMA CVTEA is aware that many CVTEA accredited veterinary technology programs are making changes to their program delivery in response to the COVID-19 crises. Students are encouraged to reach out to their program director for details on any changes. The AVMA CVTEA is working with programs to ensure that the Standards of Accreditation continue to be met as they strive to ensure student and Program personnel safety.
