The Veterinary Technician National Examination (VTNE) is owned and administered by the American Association of Veterinary State Boards(AAVSB). The VTNE is used to evaluate entry-level veterinary technicians' competency to practice and to be credentialed. The computer-based exam is given in three testing windows per year (winter, summer, and fall) and is constantly updated, reviewed and re-evaluated by highly-qualified item writers so that it remains a valid tool.


Most states and provinces require a passing score on the VTNE as one criterion for receiving credentials. The exam is administered at Prometric Testing Centers throughout the U.S. and Canada.
