Board Criteria for Continuing Education
There will be some modifications for continuing education credits for the next renewal period ending June 30, 2021 for FYE renewal 2022.
If you requested an extension of continuing education hours for the renewal period July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, you will add these hours to your required number of continuing education hours.
Due to COVID the Board will allow conferences that have been held “ in person” over the years but due to the pandemic they are now held virtually, these conferences will be acceptable as (live) continuing education hours. Please keep all certificates of attendance for auditing purposes. The online category must be RACE approved or offered by OSU CVM and these hours do require a copy of the certificate to be provided with your renewal.
If you obtained any hours in the months of May or June 2020 and didn't use them towards your FYE 2021 renewal - these hours may be "rolled over" and used on your FYE 2022 renewal.
