I was wondering yalls knowledge or opinion on becoming a Equinq Vet Tech in Texas. I have been wanting to go to school to become a vet tech for sometime now but not until late has it been heavy on my mind. I did some searching on places around my area who offer a vet tech program and found a place in the Dallas area that is suppose to be a good place to go. I believe its called Cedar Valley. It has a distance program where for 3 of the 4 semesters I can study online from home and not actually go up to the school till the 4th semester. I live 2 hrs alway from the location so a distance program would be great plus I have 2 young boys. Does anyone know of this college and if so is it a good place?
I have also been told by a handful of people that it is not necessary to go to school to become vet tech cause you can get hired on at the vets and they will train you and teach you their way. But I read that they are trying to make it mandatory to go and get an associates degree in it. Anyone care to enlighten me?
I also just found out that my local college offers a one year course but I believe the lady said its a certificate you get. Will I be as qualified to be hired as a person with an associates?
I just want to become a vet tech and do what I love. I also don't want to waste 2 yrs on something I could have done locally for a year or not at all but I also want to be knowledgable and confident about my skills and get paid decent. I don't mind going to school for 2 yrs either but I don't want to go to the interview to find out they really arent considering or impressed by my associates or certificate cause they are going to teach me their way.
I've been told so much its left me confused on whats the right choice and where to start. HELP ANYONE WHO HAS KNOWLEDGE ON THIS! :)
