Continuing Education is now required for all California RVTs. Prior to each re-licensing, RVTs must accumulate 20 CE credit hours from an approved provider.
Beginning on July 1, 2013, the VMB shall only issue renewal registrations to applicants who have completed a minimum of 20 hours of CE in the preceding two years. At least 16 hours must come from qualifying courses conducted by approved CE providers, such as CaRVTA. A maximum of 4 hours of self study can be counted toward required CE hours.
This requirement does not apply to initial licensure or first-time renewals, only second-time and subsequent RVT license renewals.
