Continuing Education


All On-line CE Accepted for 2020 and 2021

Per the NCVMB
In response to the current COVID-19 Pandemic, the Governor’s state of emergency orders and stay at home orders, the NCVMB will suspend the requirement that only 6 hours of CE may be obtained via online learning. Therefore, for the years 2020/2021, Registered Veterinary Technicians may obtain their CE completely online/virtually (both interactive and non-interactive) if necessary to complete their required hours.

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.

Each month, NCAVT offers a free 1 hour webinar for NCAVT Members. See the link below for more information.
