Upcoming Webinars

Veterinary CE 2016 & 2017 VETgirl Webinars

Interested in veterinary online continuing education (CE)? Check out our preliminary 2017 VETgirl online CE webinars below; we'll be adding more so make sure to check back. Our VETgirl CE credits are RACE-approved for both veterinarians and veterinary technicians; some are still pending RACE-approval.*

If you’re a VETgirl ELITE member, you can get 40+ hours of RACE-approved, veterinary online continuing education each year. As a VETgirl ELITE member, know that you have flexibility to view these when you have time. All the online webinars are recorded and can be viewed after the release date for CE credit. Don’t forget to take the CE quiz with it when you’re done to get your CE certificate!

NOTE: If you watch the online webinar live at the time of original release, no need to take the CE quiz! This counts as interactive, active CE. If you watch the webinar as a recording, you do need to take the CE quiz to get your passive, non-interactive CE certificate.
