CE ACCREDITATION

Is ACVC RACE®-approved for CE credits?

Our former Fetch dvm360® Conferences have been RACE®-approved in jurisdictions which recognize RACE® approval. We are currently submitting applications for RACE®-approval for ACVC.

Participants will be able to choose from over 300 sessions over the course of ACVC, a dvm360® Conference.

The American Association of Veterinary State Boards’ (AAVSB) Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE) program develops and applies uniform standards for veterinary medicine continuing education.  RACE®-approved continuing education programs are widely recognized by veterinary professionals as quality courses which help them meet their compliance obligations for licensure.

The RACE® committee reviews programs based on meeting the requirements of the RACE® Standards. RACE® does not accredit, endorse or certify any program or person, nor does RACE approval or validate the content of the program.  Additionally, RACE® approves contact hours/credit hours, not CEUs (continuing education units).

RACE®-approved programs are accepted without additional jurisdictional approval by 61 North American regulatory bodies. Click here to view the list of these jurisdictions.

State veterinary licenses are issued by the veterinary regulatory board or licensure entity within each state. Therefore, each state determines its specific prerequisites for licensure eligibility and requirements for licensure. We cannot guarantee every state will accept the CE credits offered by dvm360®. Participants should contact their veterinary boards for specific clarifications and to see if a program will meet their criteria for continuing education. Rules and regulations are constantly reviewed and/or updated, and changes take a while to become effective. Please click here to locate your state board website and get additional information on CE regulations.

How do I claim my CE credit for ACVC in Atlantic City?

A record of participation form will be included in the Conference Guide and available online for attendees to track and submit their CEs to their veterinary regulatory board or licensure entity within your state. Please click here to locate your state board website and get additional information on CE regulations.
