Continuing Education


The WSAVT is here to help satisfy your continuing education (CE) needs. The State of Washington requires 30 hours of CE every 3 years which maybe audited at the time of your license renewal.Currently only 10 hours may be obtained online or through journal credits.A maximum of 10 hours can be business management courses. As you can see membership has it's benefits!Join now for CE at reduced rates.


Please Note: Inclusion of CE events on the WSAVT Website does not ensure it will be accepted by the Washington Veterinary Board of Governors as acceptable CE for license renewal. When in doubt, ask the CE host if they have obtained credit opportunities from the VBOG.
