RACE is one of the four 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
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.
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
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.
