North Carolina Association of Veterinary Technicians
All On-line CE Accepted for 2022 and 2023 Renewals Per the NCVMB
In response to the on-going COVID Pandemic, the Governor’s stance on social distancing, the NCVMB will suspend the requirement that only 10 hours of CE for Veterinarians and 6 hours of CE for Veterinary Technicians may be obtained via on-line. Therefore, for the years 2022 & 2023, Veterinarians, Faculty and Registered Veterinary Technicians may obtain their CE completely on-line (virtually - both interactive and noninteractive) if necessary to complete their required hours. (CE for these renewal years would be obtained in 2020/2021/2022). If conditions allow, we encourage members to attend in person for CE if possible. - North Carolina Veterinary Medical Board
CE Requirements for Veterinary Technicians:
Continuing Education: Proof of twelve (12) hours required every two (2) years - Six (6) on-line hours of training will be accepted during each renewal, however, three (3) of those hours will need to be 'interactive'.
Beginning in 2020, renewals will require two (2) hours of CE on the 'abuse of controlled substances'. For technicians, CE needs to be obtained in 2018 or 2019 for the 2020/2021 renewal.
As a reminder, as part of the 12 hours of CE requirement, 2 hours must be dedicated to controlled substance CE.
