Yes, those who have gone through the PAVE process should be able to use these credentials to become a veterinary technician. Those who have gone through PAVE have been trained in the technical aspects of veterinary medicine, and should be able to use their skills to obtain VT licensure and help our animals in the commonwealth. In these unprecedented times of veterinary staff shortages, it is important to utilize all available and qualified candidates.
