Due to a growing interest amongst veterinary technicians and nurses to attain an advanced level of knowledge, skills and certification in a particular field, the first veterinary technician specialist (VTS) academy was formed in 1996.  In 2016 there are now 12 recognised specialist academies with over 750 technicians designated VTS’s.   Each Academy develops pathways through application and examination in which a candidate must demonstrate advanced skills and knowledge in order to be awarded the designation of Veterinary Technician Specialist.

**Nurse Congress Proceedings will be available on a USB in your congress bag
