LUBBOCK, Texas (Jan. 21, 2016) ­- As science continues to shape the world we live in today, the need for educational resources and high-demand skills is essential to provide a foundational knowledge for students to succeed. To prepare the next generation of animal health professionals, CEV Multimedia announced the launch of the Elanco Veterinary Medical Applications Certification, further expanding opportunities and experiences in Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. The certification is the second certification endorsed by Elanco and delivered through iCEV, an online platform that produces and delivers comprehensive education content.

The Elanco Veterinary Medical Applications Certification verifies the competencies needed to achieve employability within the veterinary science field and is transferrable to health and animal science fields. Those who earn the certification are more qualified and prepared to enter a variety of roles within the agriculture and health industries. 

iCEV also offers optional study material to help individuals prepare for the certification exam. More than 20 lessons are available via the online curriculum, including Veterinary Medical Terms & Terminology, Animals & Society, Veterinary Laws & Ethics, Common Veterinary Medical Equipment, Veterinary Medical Practices, various animal anatomy lessons and much more.

"We’re pleased to continue our partnership with Elanco by hosting a new certification addressing practical applications for a career in the medical and veterinary science field" said Jeff Lansdell, president of CEV Multimedia. "With unparalleled veterinary industry leaders and resources, we’re equipping students with the foundational knowledge and skill set they need to succeed in the industry."

Elanco stepped forward as an industry leader to create the Veterinary Medical Applications Certification after recognizing a need for more skilled workers in the veterinary industry. Due to Elanco's leadership in the field of animal science, employers — veterinarians, animal health-care providers, zoologists, feed sales/consultants, sales representatives, livestock farm managers/herdsman, etc.— recognize the value behind the Elanco brand.

"By developing this new certification we continue to share our vision to improve the health and wellness of animals," said Brad Williams D.V.M., Beef Technical Consultant for Elanco. "Pursuing a veterinary track provides valuable experience for students who are passionate about transforming animal health and maintaining the well-being of our food supply and pets."

In addition to the Elanco Veterinary Medical Applications certifications, CEV Multimedia offers a host of other certifications supported or endorsed by industry leaders supporting CTE programs including:
