Another successful AVMA Convention is in the books! Attendees learned so much in the span of just five days through CE sessions, hands-on learning, interactive labs, and more. Plus, each attendee had the chance to explore new products and services from our many exhibitors, and we had a great turnout at our extracurricular events and networking opportunities. AVMA is already working hard to build on the 2017 experience and create a wildly exciting 2018 AVMA Convention in Denver. See you there!

Convention CE certificates

AVMA offers two types of CE certificates

  • General Certificate of Attendance – Shows the maximum hours of AVMA approved CE credit.
  • Detailed CE Certificate – Lists each attended session title and the total earned CE hours.

If you have questions about which type best meets your needs, check the state veterinary licensing board website for CE criteria.
