    How Veterinary CE Calculation Works

    Certificate of Attendance and number of CE hours you receive will be based on your registration type (Veterinarian, Veterinary Technicians, Practice Manager, etc). Some boards have limitations on the hours accepted in certain categories or restrictions on methods of delivery for veterinary CE as well as specific procedures for certification and documentation of attendance. Compliance is the responsibility of the registrant.

    Veterinary CE credits for Hands-on Laboratories, Meet the Professor Luncheons and Masterclasses are calculated on the number of hours each entails. It is the attendees’ responsibility to track and report their earned CE hours to the appropriate licensing boards.

    Documentation

    Procedures for certification and documentation of attendance are determined by the individual state board. Compliance with these policies is the responsibility of the registrant. We recommend that you keep a handwritten record of your session attendance to compare with the copy you can email or print at the Registration Desk during the conference.

    Veterinarians Licensed in Texas or New York

    Veterinarians licensed in the states of Texas or New York MUST obtain their CE Certificate prior to leaving NAVC Conference 2014. Certificates are printed at the Registration Desk and cannot be mailed or issued after the Conference.
