Vet Tech Schools in Alabama
Finding the right school is the best way to get your career started as a vet tech. Choosing the right vet tech school should take time and lots of consideration. You do not want to go into a program if you are not 100% sure about it. Especially if you have not met any of the professors or viewed the facilities. You definitely want to make sure that you will be happy at the school you choose to attend. This page is here to provide information. I would strongly suggest doing plenty of research on the school you choose. I have decided to only post schools that have been accredited by the AVMA. There are plenty of other programs not accredited by the AVMA, but those programs do not make you eligible to complete the national vet tech exam. The exam is crucial to becoming a certified, licensed, or registered vet tech in almost all states. Unfortunately there are not many vet tech schools in Alabama that are accredited. There is actually only one. Which is the Jefferson State Community College in Birmingham. The program run at Jefferson State is a distance-education program that requires online classwork as well as working as a vet tech. Although living within driving distance of Birmingham isn’t required it is highly recommended. Some clinical and laboratory components will have to be completed on campus.
If you are seriously considering school I would let SimpleTuition find the right student loan for you. I have found that they seem to have the most options as far as student loans go.
