VTNE Prep Course on VSPN
The Veterinary Technician National Examination (VTNE) is offered three times a year now.

Enrollment is open now for the next course. If you are planning on testing during the July-August window, enroll now!

TECH275-0617: Feline Internal Medicine Case Challenges Module 2

Working through cases is a great way to learn! These two brand new VSPN CE courses will work through cases from obtaining patient history through the home care you may need to counsel clients about. The first module will consist of canine cases, and the second module will consist of feline cases. Join VSPN CE instructor and moderator Marisa Rhyne, LVT, VTS (ECC, SAIM) for these two new courses.
