Veterinary technicians serve a vital role in the agriculture, animal health, and medical research industries in South Dakota and throughout the region. Veterinary technicians support veterinarians by assisting in the evaluation and treatment of basic health, injuries and/or illness of large and small animals. Veterinary technicians can work in agricultural production settings, laboratories, research facilities, animal hospitals and clinics.
The veterinary technician students will have the opportunity to sit for the Veterinary Technician National Exam.
Note: This degree is a Bring Your Own Laptop (BYOL) program, meaning you can purchase a laptop on your own or from the Southeast Tech Support Center.
