EDPA Continuing Education

The EDPA offers continuing education (CE) for veterinarians, vet techs, and equine dental providers. The CE program is developed by the EDPA Certification Committee. All licensed Equine Dental Providers must accrue annual CE hours in order to maintain their licensure. The CE program must be approved by the State Veterinary Board. Most State Boards also accept USDA module courses as well as any RACE (American Association of Veterinary State Boards, Registry of Approved Continuing Education) approved programs.


The EDPA applies for State and RACE approvals for all CE programs. Approved programs require specific detailed and relevant topics, professional and qualified speakers, specified presentation times as well as attendance hours and record keeping of all participants and certificates of completion. The EDPA CE programs all meet these standards and requirements.


The EDPA CE programs usually offer between 12-20 hours of CE in a 2-3 day period. These hours will include wet labs, demonstrations, modules, presentations, and lectures. At times, these programs may be held at an equine hospital or farm for an optimal learning experience.


The EDPA strives to offer CE programs at an affordable price. Discounts are given to EDPA members. The CE Program is fully funded from donations to the Miller Educational Scholarship Fund. The EDPA is a 501c (3) non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.


For more information regarding EDPA CE opportunities or to donate, please contact the EDPA Membership Director, office@edpaonline.org
