Join the VTG team of consultants
VTG is always searching for qualified personnel to join our research, training, and clinical teams. The majority of VTG consultants work as independent contractors based on their own availability, skills, and interests. Prospective consultants are screened through our application process and qualified applicants are invited to attend one of our scenario-based field recruiting and training courses. These courses simulate a field deployment and combine classroom instruction with field applications and field leadership and reaction scenarios. (See advertisements for previous R&T course, in the videos above) With a few special exceptions, all applicants must attend a VTG R&T course prior to employment or acceptance as an independent contractor. R&T courses are no-cost to the applicant and anyone completing the course is awarded a certificate for 16 contact hours of CE (including veterinary state-approved CE)
