CE Credit

Last updated 6/27/17

CE information will be updated continuously as we receive responses from RACE, state boards, and allied groups.

If your state is not yet listed, we are working hard to get approval from your state board.  We have sent applications to all state boards that do not automatically approve our program.

Some states may automatically accept CE that is RACE approved. Others may limit the number of credits that can be obtained in integrative, complementary, or alternative topics. If you have questions about your state’s specific CE requirements, please refer to your state’s Veterinary Practice Act or contact your state board directly.


The 2017 AHVMA Conference (program 131-30163) is approved by the AAVSB RACE to offer a total of 93.00 CE Credits (22.00 max) being available to any one veterinarian and/or 93.00 Veterinary Technician CE Credits (22.00) max. This RACE approval is for the subject matter categories of:

  • Category One: Scientific
  • Category Two: Non-Scientific-Clinical
  • Category Three: Non-Scientific-Practice Management/Professional Development

using the delivery method of Seminar/Lecture/Lab/Wet Lab.

This approval is valid in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB RACE; however, participants are responsible for ascertaining each board’s CE requirements. RACE does not “accredit” or “endorse” or “certify” any program or person, nor does RACE approval validate the content of the program.

Still Waiting on Your State?

If you’re waiting to see your state appear in the list and want to take action, here are some ways to help AHVMA and the CAVM Community:

  • Make sure your memberships are up to date so we can maintain our position in the AVMA House of Delegates. (Member rates for conference registration are also a great benefit!)
  • Make a donation to the AHVM Foundation.
    Over the course of five years the Foundation has funded 20 research projects involving veterinary schools, specialty practices, and holistic agriculture organizations.  The Foundation has provided scholarships to over 70 veterinary students and helps fund Student AHVMA chapters at veterinary colleges throughout the country.  This helps students to attend the AHVMA Annual Conference!
  • Follow us on Facebook! 
    If you’re not yet one of our followers – please follow us on Facebook to help us spread news about AHVMA happenings, Journal articles, Conference news, and more!  We even have a 2017 Annual Conference Event page where you can start to network and plan your trip with your fellow conference attendees.
