Acknowledgments, Accreditations and Abivet Conventions

The Accreditation Committee for Veterinary Technician Education is a voluntary organization established in 2007 to accredit veterinary technician education programs in the EU. In Europe, Veterinary Technicians are essential in the veterinary team. While each country has its own established systems for its own education and training, a more standardized approach helps veterinary registrars and employers to facilitate the movement of qualified veterinary technicians between EU Member States. ACOVENE accordingly sets standards for the delivery of veterinary technician training and establishes the minimum curriculum content for an accredited program.
