VTI is amazing as long as you actually work for it and put your best foot forward!! Everything I am learning actually matters and pertains to my future, I get hands on experience (not everyday but most normal days) with animals practicing procedures and medical duties, and I'll never stop learning. The program is intense and strenuous because it's a program condensed into 2 years instead of 4. You learn everything so fast that you feel like you didn't retain anything (everyone around you feels the same you aren't alone), but you'll be surprised to know you actually DO know :) You don't get the summers off, but you finish the program quickly. It WILL fly by so fast you can't believe you'll be done in less than 5 months!! If you are not fully dedicated to animals and are in this field because you "hate people", you will have the worst time here and when you graduate. The teachers are always wanting to help you, whether it be academically or personally. I will say the faculty does come off as snubbish sometimes. But as long as you are professional, appropriate, polite, and respectful to them they will (they should anyway regardless) treat you the same. I honestly think VTI is top notch to go for an education as a certified veterinary technician. I don't regret choosing this place, and overall this has been the best experience of my life so far ^-^
Review Vet Tech Institute
This school would of been great if it wasn't rushed and is the tutors were the teachers instead of the students. You spend 8 weeks on each class and get about 3-4 test a week, so its hard to study. All test are equally important so you have to study hard for each class.
Its a vary unique school. The school is just for veterinary Technician learning. There is people everywhere willing to help you. It is a very fast pace school but its worth it. plus there are on sight animals. they have Dogs, cats, rats, rabbits, and hamsters. you can for the most part go and see the animals any time you want. its a amazing school and i'm grateful i got the opportunity to go to the Vet Tech Institute.
