ABC is NAVTA-Approved!

Animal Behavior College has earned approval from the National Association of Veterinary Technicians of America (NAVTA) for our comprehensive Veterinary NAVTA-ApprovedAssistant Program. The approval process is quite rigorous and takes over a year to accomplish which is why so few schools actually achieve this designation.

ABC is one of only a few online schools to be approved by NAVTA. We are proud of this distinction. NAVTA approval is highly respected in the veterinary community.  Upon completion of our NAVTA-approved program, graduates will have earned the privilege and opportunity to take NAVTA's national test and become an Approved Veterinary Assistant (AVA).2
