Baker College of Flint officials report that 100 percent of its 2009 veterinary technician graduates have passed the Veterinary Technician National Examination (VTNE) and the state licensing exam issued by the state of Michigan. A total of 18 graduates took the exams and passed on the first attempt. The 2009 national average pass rate on the first effort is 74 percent and the corresponding state pass rate is 83 percent on the first attempt.

“These positive results are a testimonial to the hard work and perseverance of our students, as well as the dedication of our faculty and staff in providing the skills and training necessary to succeed in the veterinary technology field,” said Julianne T. Princinsky, Ed.D., Baker College of Flint president.

In Michigan, a graduate of an American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) accredited program must successfully pass a state and national board examination to become a Licensed Veterinary Technician (LVT).

Career opportunities for a veterinary technician include the following areas: small and large animal hospitals, research, education, pharmaceuticals, zoos and the military.

The veterinary technology program at Baker College of Flint has been accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Committee on Veterinary Technician Education and Activities (CVTEA) since 2002.
