Due to delays in the regulatory process, at its August 29, 2018 meeting, the Veterinary Medical Board approved pushing the delayed implementation date for eliminating the "ad hoc" Alternate Route" pathway to sit for the RVT Exams from July 1, 2020 to July 1, 2024.  This means that assuming the regulation is finally approved, candidates utilizing the Alternate Route will have to acquire the 300 hours of required education in an approved Alternate Route program after July 1, 2024.
