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 take awhile to become effective.

The RACE program reviews and approves programs but does not “accredit” them. Additionally, RACE approves contact hours/credit hours, not CEUs (continuing education units).
