These are the most frequently asked questions that the GVMA office receives regarding LEAP CE.
LEAP (Legal, Ethical and Professional) CE is an education program created by the GVMA to help veterinarians meet new requirements from the Georgia State Board of Veterinary Medicine.
Veterinarians must have at least two hours of continuing education in Georgia laws and rules, and legal, ethical and professional issues each biennial licensure period (2009-2010). Veterinary technicians are required to have one hour per licensure period.
The simple answer is to attend the GVMA LEAP CE offerings. The GVMA has worked directly with the State Board to create approved CE for all GVMA LEAP programs. If you are uncertain whether the CE you obtained from non-GVMA events meets the requirements contact the Georgia State Board of Veterinary Medicine at (478) 207-2440.
The GVMA is the largest provider of LEAP CE throughout the state of Georgia. More LEAP CE events will be made available during license renewal years (even years). Please contact us if you would like to bring LEAP CE to your location!
LEAP CE is free for all GVMA members, and free registration for LEAP CE is available for members at any meeting where GVMA LEAP CE is offered. Veterinarian members are also given the opportunity to register their Licensed Technicans for GVMA LEAP CE for free as well! Non-GVMA Members are provided LEAP CE at the rate of $250 per person.
