Veterinary Technical Institute-VTI online program
Anyone heard of this vet school? They offer a vet tech or vet receptionist program. It looks legit and is apparently accredited by the FL board of ed.

  • A program at your local community college or college extension would probably be cheaper and you would probably be more likely to get a job. When you go to a state college you usually pay one half to one third what you do for a private college or online program. With a local program you probably do some of your progam working with a local vet. That vet may give you a job when you graduate. State colleges have financial aid including grants, money you never have to pay back, that may cover all of your tuition, books, and even have money left over.

  • Stay away from for-profit schools. They exist, by law, to make money for their owners/shareholders; education is not their priority. When I was in HR, I did not interview candidates from the for-profit schools.

    Start with a community college; they will likely have many classes on line and the credits will easily transfer to a state university.

    Have a couple of informational interviews with people in your chosen field to help you determine whether or not this is the right career choice for you. Check to see if there are open jobs in this field, too.
