Licensing Course

All new Veterinary Technologists must take a licensing course and write and pass an exam.  The November 2019 Licensing Seminar presentations were video-recorded and we now have a 4-hour licensing course ONLINE, with four videos to watch and the exam to complete, which covers: 

  • information about being a self regulatory body,
  • the range of legislation we must abide by,
  • how the complaints process works,
  • how practice inspection works, and
  • VCPR. 

The in-person licensing seminars are being discontinued. The new online format will ensure that new members are receiving the information they need prior to (or shortly after) beginning working in Saskatchewan. The passing grade for the Licensing Exam is 80%.  The Licensing Course is $75 (+GST) and is approved for 4 CE hours. First re-write: $100; Second re-write: $250. If unsuccessful on second re-write, candidate must appear before SVMA Council.

Upon approval of SVMA membership, you will be emailed access information which will allow you to log in to the Online Classroom and register for the Licensing Course. New members must complete the new online licensing course within 30 days of membership approval.
