strengthening the veterinary

regulatory community

RACE is one of the key programs provided by the AAVSB. The purpose of the RACE program is to develop and apply uniform standards related to providers and programs of continuing education (CE) in veterinary medicine. Our goal is to serve and support the AAVSB Member Boards by ensuring that all RACE-approved programs meet appropriate standards of quality continuing education (CE).

All RACE-approved providers and programs are listed on this website. Providers voluntarily apply to the RACE program and agree to abide by the RACE Standards. AAVSB does not solicit participation in the RACE program.

RACE Acceptance
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 AAVSB Member Boards; however, Providers and participants should verify recognition with their board(s) and should be aware that some boards have limitations on the number of hours accepted in certain categories and/or restrictions of certain methods of delivery of continuing education.

Please contact the veterinary regulatory agencies for specific clarifications and to see if your program will meet their criteria for continuing education. Rules and regulations are constantly reviewed and/or updated and changes may take time to become effective.

The RACE program reviews and approves programs but does not "accredit" them.
