WVC expands programming offered to veterinary technicians


Veterinary technicians can earn more than 20 hours CE with inaugural Veterinary Technician Symposium in June 2015.

Western Veterinary Conference (WVC) will offer something new for technicians this year, with its inaugural Veterinary Technician Symposium June 29 through July 1, 2015.

The symposium will offer a comprehensive learning experience for technicians who want to advance their careers through skill building, according to WVC officials. The event will take place at WVC's Oquendo Center in Las Vegas and allow participating technicians to earn more than 20 hours of continuing education credits. Included in the program offerings are online learning opportunities and skill-based instruction on topics like anesthesia, pain management, dentistry and emergency and critical care where groups of 20 to 40 technicians will work alongside expert instructors.

“WVC is proud to be the host of first-of-its-kind programming that provides a strong emphasis on hands-on training directed specifically at the veterinary technician community,” says David Little, chief executive officer of WVC. “The WVC Veterinary Technician Symposium showcases WVC's commitment to providing continuing education for veterinary technicians. It is also an exciting opportunity to collaborate with NAVTA, specialty organizations and VetMedTeam.”

The National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America (NAVTA) and VetMedTeam are among the organizations partnering with WVC to host the event.
