Application for Amnesty Certification

04 Sep 2011 7:42 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Florida Veterinary Technician Association (FVTA) recognizes that the State of Florida’s Board of Veterinary Medicine (BVM) does not regulate the certification, licensure, or registration of credentialed veterinary technicians (CVT).  As a result, many highly qualified CVTs have allowed their certifications through the FVTA to lapse, presumably due to a lack of incentive to maintain certification.  In the coming years, the FVTA intends to aggressively seek recognition from the BVM for CVTs as licensed (LVT), registered (RVT), or certified (CVT) just as the great majority of other states have done.  When this occurs, we want to ensure that no deserving veterinary technician is left behind without the credentials they have earned through education, examination, and continued professional development.

It is the opinion of the FVTA’s Executive Board that we must first build a strong foundation of active, credentialed members within our association.  In an effort to do just that, the Executive Board has voted on and approved an Amnesty Program which will allow those veterinary technicians whose certification has lapsed to re-certify through the FVTA – please refer to the Amnesty Application for specific requirements.  It is our hope that this program will allow us to build strength in numbers so that our voice can be heard and the passion and dedication that each of us have for our profession will be acknowledged by the BVM.
