Vet tech schools?

After doing some major thinking, I've decided that I want to go back to school and study to become a vet tech. The problem is I have no clue as to how to research this. Are there schools that are vet specific? I've heard of the Bel-Rea Institute, but they're in Colorado and I can't afford to move there. Does anyone know if there is a similar place in Southern California that I could possibly attend? And what about volunteering at a local vet? Would that help me?

Any suggestions/thoughts/comments will be greatly appreciated.

Whoa! If you don't think you can afford Colorado, don't even consider Southern California! It's ridiculous.

As far as the schooling the one here in Colorado (Colorado State University) is actually more expensive than in South California or so I have been told..
I am sorry

You don't have to tell me, Marie. I'm only about 2 hours north of you. If my two younger kids were older, I would consider moving to Colorado. But since this divorce business is in full swing, I emotionally can't afford to move out of state...no matter how much I want to at this moment.

Alot of schools offer vet tech programs. Working with a local vet to get an idea if that is something that you want to do is a great idea.

Good luck to you!!
