The Association of Zoo Veterinary Technicians provides continuing education for vet techs through our annual conference and occasional regional meetings. The AZVT Conference is a 4-5 day event, held annually in the early fall with the location changing each year. Our unique program focuses on zoo, aquatic, conservation, and wildlife medicine.
AZVT is a RACE-approved provider.

AZVT would like to send a huge THANK YOU! to WCS for once again paying the NY State application fee to allow AZVT to be a Continuing Education Provider in the state of New York.
