Congratulations 2018 AVT Graduates

On Thursday, 13th December 2018 we were excited and pleased to acknowledge AVT students who have successfully completed their qualifications in Veterinary Nursing and Animal Studies in a formal award ceremony in Perth, Western Australia.

2018 Award Winners

It was the perfect December evening for close to 200 VIPs, graduates and their supportive families and friends to celebrate the accomplishments of our students.  During the event we were honoured to hear from our key team members, student speakers and guest speakers and award presenters Kristy Kuhnert and Tracey Woods from the Vet Nurses Council of Australia (VNCA). 

We also recognised students for outstanding achievement in individual award categories and we were proud to present the winners with award certificates and gifts from our generous award sponsors shown below.

We would also like to congratulate each and every one of our graduates who were unable to attend the evening. We acknowledge your hard work and perseverance in completing your theoretical and practical training. We also congratulate the many of you who have already secured employment and we look forward to hearing about your experiences and adventures in the animal care industry.
