RACE does not “accredit” or “endorse” or “certify” any program or person, nor does RACE approval validate the content of the program.” This course is NOT RACE approved for licensed veterinarians, only veterinary technicians.

Although Pet Emergency Education teaches the most current industry standards for animal CPR, we are in no way affiliated with the RECOVER Initiative, its affiliated organizations or its RECOVER training program.

Continuing Education Credits for Veterinary Technicians

We take great pride in offering RACE approved Continuing Education Units to veterinary technicians. In order for your staff to receive RACE CEU’s AAVSB requires us to submit the state and credentialing number for each technician (CVT, RVT, LVT). Without this information we will can only provide generic CEU’s, not RACE approved CEU’s. We encourage each of your technicians to create a free RACEtrack account with AAVSB. This site will sync to RACEtrack, the AAVSB’s CE tracking system, and provide a seamless connection between CE providers, licensees, and regulators. Your techs will be able to access all of their CEU in one location and submit them to them to their state board.  If the technicians choose not to use RACEtrack we will still provide a downloadable certificate from their account on our website, however we cannot guarantee your state will accept it for Continuing Education. You were given the opportunity to provide this information at checkout before you entered your credit card information. If you neglected to do this then you need to email us at before the class is held.
