TVMA ANNUAL CONFERENCE
USDA-APHIS Training Modules
By now all veterinarians who wished to retain their U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) veterinary accreditation should have reapplied and received a new accreditation number from the USDA with a renewal date.
USDA APHIS now requires veterinarians to complete supplemental training prior to their renewal date in order to renew their accreditation. Veterinarians will have 3 years (depending on the renewal date assigned to them) to complete the Category I, 3 hours of Supplemental Training or Category II, 6 hours of Supplemental Training. This supplemental training cannot be substituted with any other continuing education. Veterinarians may take the required supplemental trainings modules on the internet by visiting the following link http://www.aphis.usda.gov/animal_health/vet_accreditation/training_modules.shtml. However, if you prefer a more personal setting and do not want to take the classes online we would like to invite you to attend the Texas Veterinary Medical Association annual conference in College Station, Texas.
