Technician Training Kits

Workbooks to standardize your team’s onboarding and training on the clinic floor.

Level One Kits (ECC and GP Version) | 5-pack $250

Focus on the skills that your team will use every shift.

The Level One Technician Training Kit come in two versions: General Practice or Emergency & Critical Care. Both versions ensure technicians know important skills, like safe restraint, monitoring patient vitals, and use of anesthetic records. By using the skills assessment, managers can easily see which skills each technician has mastered.

Plus, both kits come with plenty of technician tips that are applicable to technicians in any veterinary practice. These tips were crafted by our own technicians, here at DoveLewis Veterinary Emergency and Specialty Animal Hospital!

Inside the Technician Training Kits

  • Clear vinyl front and back covers to protect from splashes
  • Spiral bound for an easy-to-hold, flat writing surface.
  • Notes sections and blank pages to keep track of questions, notes, and reminders.
  • Perforated tear-away management instructions and exam answer key
  • Checklists of 80+ core concepts and skills
  • A-Z Technician Terminology glossary
  • CPR Log
  • Skills assessment exam and certificate of completion

Checklists keep track of core concepts and skills.

It’s amazing the amount of knowledge your technicians bring to work every day. Track individual progress and ensure consistency throughout your entire team while they complete skills, including (but not limited to!):

  • Patient preparation for abdominal ultrasound
  • Calculating tidal volume for anesthetic procedures
  • Use of IV and syringe pumps
  • Low-stress and effective patient restraint
  • ECG set-up
  • Hospital-wide standards such as hospital cleaning protocols

For the General Practice Technician

The General Practice kit will be your team’s with topics covering preventative care and dentistry, and a skills assessment that ensures they understand vaccine schedules, how to perform dental charting, and improve client communication when discussing flea and heartworm preventative.

For the Emergency & Critical Care Technician

Our comprehensive list of emergency treatment skills come straight from the floor of our VECCS Level 1, 24/7 emergency and specialty hospital. With it as a guide, teams can reinforce the basics of emergency triage, treatment of urinary obstructions, and sampling body cavity fluids. Exam questions in this kit incorporate the need for critical thinking in an unpredictable environment.

Personalized and practical workbooks for real professionals.

We carry around our notebooks just like you do, and we designed the Level One Technician Training Kit with your sometimes messy, gooey, fast-paced environment in mind.

Building Consistency on the Floor, One Skill at a Time

Onboarding. Shadowing. Trial by fire. See one, do one, teach one. Getting your team trained up to the same level is hard. It’s why we made this workbook. With checklists of over 80 skills, trainers can spend their time focusing on ensuring their team is on track.

The skills and concepts list ensure technicians know how to complete these skills at your clinic. Track individual progress and ensure consistency throughout your entire team while they complete skills, including:

  • Patient preparation for abdominal ultrasound
  • Calculating tidal volume for anesthetic procedures
  • Use of IV and syringe pumps
  • Low-stress and effective patient restraint
  • ECG set-up
  • Hospital-wide standards such as hospital cleaning protocols

Using the Technician Tool Kit

This in-clinic kit incorporates over 80 skills for technicians to master to ensure the highest quality patient care. After demonstrating each skill in the skills assessment, technicians should complete the exam which incorporates over 30 multiple choice questions. This exam is a clear way to see areas that each of your technicians excel at and promote conversations about areas of improvement. The kit is not a replacement for educational institutions and certified veterinary technician programs.

Here at DoveLewis, we not only use these kits for new technicians, but as supplemental training tool for ongoing training and career growth for technicians of all experience levels.
