Additional Information

  • In response to the on-going COVID-19 Pandemic, the Governor’s stance on social distancing, the NCVMB will suspend the requirement that only 10 hours of CE may be obtained via online learning. Therefore, for the year 2021, Veterinarians and Registered Veterinary Technicians may obtain their CE completely online/virtually (both interactive and non-interactive) if necessary, to complete their required hours.
  • You are exempted from CE requirements for your FIRST renewal cycle if you graduate the same year you become licensed/registered in North Carolina.
