Advanced Continuing Education (ACE) Courses

The ACVIM continues to be a thought leader in continuing education, providing a variety of stimulating professional growth opportunities for our members and others within the profession. Courses are available in a variety of formats, ranging from live virtual, on demand and in-person settings. There are many ways to meet your CE needs and explore RACE-approved content that fits your area of expertise. 

The AAVSB’s Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE) program develops and applies uniform standards for veterinary medicine continuing education. The AAVSB is utilizing Racetrack® to optimize the CE tracking experience for both CE providers and the AAVSB's Member Boards.  This system allows veterinary professionals the chance to record all continuing education (CE) coursework in a single centralized database and easily communicates your CE to your credentialing agencies while also allowing those authorized agencies to retrieve your CE. We do encourage all attendees of any RACE program to create a free RACEtrack  account to track their CE here.

Health and Safety

The ACVIM considers the health and safety of all those who attend our ACE in-person courses our highest priority, including our attendees, sponsors and ACVIM staff. With your shared commitment and with the right processes in place, we are confident we can achieve a safe and viable return to in-person learning experiences.

The ACE Committee has been diligently monitoring the ongoing impact of COVID-19, including the latest developments around the surge of the Delta variant. The health and safety for all participants at our in-person courses remains our highest priority during these uncertain times. Although we are optimistic that we will be able to host ACE courses in-person, all courses are subject to change and/or cancellation. The ACVIM will keep all registered attendees informed should any such change and/or cancellation need to occur.
