Take the attitude of a student, never be too big to ask questions, never know too much to learn something new." - Og Mandino
Veterinary Technology Students
Looking for advice on which school to attend? How much schooling does it take to become a CVT? Answers and much more here!
Are you passionate about your career and veterinary medicine? The WVTA can open doors for you. Volunteering as a member of the Executive Board/Committee can give you the leadership experience necessary for you to qualify for that promotion you have had your eye on. Networking events and the name recognition that come from being involved might give you an edge over another candidate for a job in your 'dream clinic.' Many employers want to hire career technicians because they are the ones that demonstrate their passion for the field by having initiative. Don't worry if you don't know the first thing about leadership, the great news is that we are a team and as a team we help each other gain the skills we need to succeed. You need to be a CVT in order to qualify as an elected board member, however we welcome students to help out in our Executive Committee roles. Helping plan CE events, developing programs to help other students and outreach in the community are all vital components to making our organization the best it can be.
