INITIAL (formerly called Provisional) accreditation is not punitive and is simply the terminology given to newly accredited programs for their first five years.

Initial accreditation means the program is officially accredited. Initial accreditation does not mean programs are at a higher risk of losing accreditation or that they are “less” accredited.

Graduates of an Initially accredited program are considered graduates of an AVMA CVTEA accredited program and would be eligible in nearly all states to take the Veterinary Technician National Exam.

Programs on PROBATIONARY accreditation are still officially accredited. Graduates from programs on Probationary accreditation are considered to be graduates of an AVMA CVTEA accredited program.

Programs on TERMINAL accreditation have plans for vo​luntary closure. Programs on TERMINAL accreditation are still officially accredited.
