The CVPM Board accepts applicable continuing education (CE) that is sponsored by a state, national, or international veterinary organization (i.e., AAHA, AVMA, VHMA, VetPartners, State Veterinary Medical Association, etc.), as well as CE that is provided by a recognized educational or governmental entity, such as a university, college, community college, or government agency. The CVPM Board accepts applicable CE from non-industry recognized education providers (i.e., SkillPath, Padgett-Thompson, National Seminars, Society for Human Resource Management, American Management Association, and Fred Pryor). The CVPM Board will review non-industry providers on a case-by-case basis. In-house training programs may be accepted by the CVPM Board with prior approval.
All CE must be documented to be accepted. A certificate of attendance, certificate of completion, or transcript are acceptable as proof of continuing education. The CVPM Board will be the final judge of which courses or seminars are acceptable, and the number of hours that can be credited for each course.
For program applicants, your CE must be documented and must have been earned within the preceding three years of your application submission date. For CVPM renewal, your CE must be documented and must have been earned within the renewal time period assigned to your renewal due date.
