Individual jurisdictions retain their right to refuse, partially or in full, any Provider or program that RACE approves based on their regulation(s). Veterinary continuing education is not standardized among state veterinary boards; each maintains its own requirements.
RACE-approved continuing education is recognized by most of the AAVSB Member Boards; however, Providers and participants should verify recognition with their boards and councils and should be aware that some have limitations on the number of hours accepted in certain categories and/or restrictions of certain methods of delivery of continuing education.
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.
The RACE program reviews and approves Providers and their programs but does not "accredit" them. Additionally, RACE approves contact hours/credit hours, not CEUs (continuing education units).
All states require CE for re-licensure now.
