Advanced Continuing Education (ACE) Courses

The ACVIM continues to be a thought leader in continuing education (CE), 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. There are many ways to meet your CE needs and explore RACE-approved content that fits your area of expertise. 

The AAVSB Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE) program develops and applies uniform standards for veterinary medicine CE. The AAVSB is utilizing Racetrack® to optimize the CE tracking experience for both CE providers and AAVSB Member Boards. This system allows veterinary professionals to record all 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.
