About our School
Putting Students First
At OC Veterinary Assistant School, we provide students with a rich and diverse learning environment and the most up-to-date veterinary technology. We are here to walk with you through your journey to becoming a Registered Veterinary Technician. Our school is owned and operated by Veterinarians, Registered Veterinary Technicians, and Education Professionals.
At OCVAS we offer a unique method to becoming a Registered Veterinary Technician or Attendant. Our programs enable you to work at a veterinary clinic while attending classes. Veterinary Attendant students are given an internship at a local veterinary hospital alongside their classes, giving a real sense of what it takes to be a Veterinary Attendant, Receptionist, Assistant, or Technician. Our goal is to have you pass the Veterinary Technician National Examination (VTNE) with ease by experiencing hands-on learning.
