Maine Veterinary Technician Resouce Center


MVMA realizes the expanding need –and opportunities--for licensed veterinary technicians. This section of our website is designed to assist in the journey to becoming a licensed veterinary technician.

Once licensed, veterinary technicians can expand their careers into specialty areas, such as emergency and critical care, anesthesiology, internal medicine, animal behavior, and dentistry.

So how does an individual become licensed? Essentially, by completing a two-year college degree program (through attendance or online) and passing the Veterinary Technician National Exam (VTNE).
