Continuing Education

Serving the community through lifelong learning

We offer a variety of courses and wet labs each year for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, assistants, and the public.

Veterinarians must obtain 30 credit hours of Board-approved continuing education every two years (each “renewal period” falls in even-numbered years) to maintain an active license to practice in Georgia.

As of Jan. 1, 2009, two of the 30 hours per renewal period must be acquired in Georgia laws, rules and professionalism. You must keep a record of credit hours and proof of attendance for three years.

*Effective May 7, 2020 the Georgia State Board of Veterinary Medicine has issued an emergency rule pertaining to continuing education requirements. Additional information can be found by clicking here.
