CE Requirements

The California Veterinary Medical Association is a statutorily approved CE provider. Additional information on mandatory CE can be found at cvma.net.

California Veterinarians are required to complete 36 hours of acceptable CE during the two-year license period immediately preceding the license expiration date.

All 36 hours may be earned by attending scientific programs, such as medical and surgical courses. Up to 24 hours of business/practice management related courses will be accepted for each renewal period. A maximum of six (6) hours can be earned by self-study methods, such as non-interactive Internet courses, reading journals, listening to audiotapes, or viewing video for each renewal period.

As of January 1, 2018, a veterinary licensee must complete a minimum of one credit hour on the judicious use of medically important antimicrobial drugs every four years for license renewal. For example, if your license expired on March 31, 2018, you will need to complete a judicious use course between April 1, 2018 and March 31, 2022. After the initial course has been completed, you will need to complete a judicious use course at least every other renewal period.

PacVet Live offers a one-hour course that satisfies the California requirement on the judicious use of medically important antimicrobial drugs.

California Registered Veterinary Technicians are required to complete 20 hours of acceptable CE during the two-year license period immediately preceding the license expiration date.

All 20 hours may be earned by attending scientific programs, such as medical and surgical courses.

PacVet Live offers 4 hours of technician-specific CE. These hours will be applicable toward alternate route certification in California.

CVMA Certified Veterinary Assistants must complete a minimum of 10 hours of acceptable continuing education every two years to maintain their certification.
