the California Registered
Veterinary Technicians Association is to
elevate the veterinary profession through
the strengthening of the veterinary health care
team. We seek to promote the role of the Registered
Veterinary Technician by broadening our skills,
knowledge, and professionalism and by securing
representation of Registered Veterinary Technicians in
the regulatory and legislative arena. The California
Registered Veterinary Technicians Association strives to
increase public awareness of the role of Registered
Veterinary Technicians in veterinary medicine and our
place in enhancing the welfare of our animal patients.
The California Registered Veterinary Technicians Association is a 501(c)6 not-for-profit organization.

Medical Board is conducting an occupational
analysis of the California Registered

The purpose of the analysis is to identify the tasks performed by CRVT's in the current practice and the knowledge required to perform those tasks.
Results of the analysis will be used to update and improve the CRVT licensing program examination.
Participants will receive 4 hours of CE credit.

There are not enough registered veterinary technicians authorized to perform certain medical procedures and operate technical equipment independent of a veterinarian’s supervision. This 17-week course is accepted by the California Veterinary Medical Board under the California Alternate route program. The alternate route means the student completes a required number of hours working under the supervision of a veterinarian who certifies they are competent in specific clinical competencies. The VASE curriculum rounds out the requirements to sit for a state registered veterinary licensure exam by offering students the academic portion of the training.
