Is Animal Behavior College AVMA accredited?
The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) doesn’t accredit veterinary assistant programs which is the veterinary program that ABC offers. So, accreditation through the AVMA isn’t relevant for ABC based on the types of programs we offer. What is relevant is the National Association of Veterinary Technicians of America (NAVTA) as it is this organization that reviews and recognizes the best veterinary assistant programs in the nation. ABC is proud to share that we are only one of four online schools in the entire country whose veterinary assistant program is recognized and approved by NAVTA.
