How to calculate CE hours

Veterinary CE credits for Hands-on Laboratories, Meet the Professor Luncheons and Coffee with an Expert are calculated on the number of hours each entails. It is the attendees’ responsibility to track and report their earned CE hours to the appropriate licensing boards.

Track Your CE

To record CE attendance, tap your VMX name badge with the door monitor each time you enter a session. We recommend you also document each CE session you attend on the Record of Participation in CE Programs form.

RACE-Approved CE*

The VMX 2021 courses meet the requirements for CE credits in jurisdictions that recognize AAVSB RACE approval.*  Some boards have limitations on the hours accepted in certain categories or restrictions on methods of delivery for veterinary CE as well as specific procedures for certification and documentation of attendance. Compliance is the responsibility of the registrant.

How Veterinary CE Calculation Works:

  • 75-minute session = 1.5 CE credit hours

    50-minute session = 1 CE credit hour

    25-minute session = 0.5 CE credit hour

    20-minute session = 0.25 CE credit hour


Procedures for certification and documentation of attendance are determined by the individual state board. Compliance with these policies is the responsibility of the registrant. We recommend that you keep a handwritten record of your session attendance to compare with the copy you can email or print at your convenience after the conference, or before you leave, at the VMX CE Center at Registration.

Veterinarians Licensed in Texas

Veterinarians licensed in Texas MUST obtain their CE Certificates prior to leaving VMX. Please print your certificates at the VMX CE Center at Registration. They cannot be mailed or issued after VMX.

How Do I Access My Certificate?
