Technician Certification

Today, with thousands of animal care technicians being certified, AALAS continues to lead the way in the certification arena with computer-based testing. The AALAS Technician Certification Program provides a framework for learning, a source of self-confidence, and professional recognition for animal technicians.

Your first step is to download the Technician Certification Handbook - It contains everything you need to know about qualification criteria, exam fees, application and testing procedures, and many other topics, and should be retained for use as a reference during the application process.
