Helping veterinarians succeed in Colorado is a key part of the CVMA mission. To help Colorado veterinarians navigate the new substance use prevention training requirements, CVMA has created a list of frequently asked questions.
Is this new training in addition to the 32 hours of CE currently required by the State Board of Veterinary Medicine?
No. This training on substance use prevention is included in the 32 hours of CE already required by the State Board of Veterinary Medicine.
Why was this requirement added?
On May 23, 2019, Governor Jared Polis signed SB19-228 Substance Use Disorders Prevention. The new law requires the State Board of Veterinary Medicine to adopt rules on substance use prevention training for prescribers; the new rules went into effect on November 30, 2019. Read more about the background of the bill and CVMA’s input on the new rules.
Is this a CVMA requirement?
No. This new requirement is a result of legislation that was passed. CVMA is assisting veterinarians in obtaining the required CE by offering it virtually to veterinarians looking to renew their Colorado licenses.
Is this CE only available to CVMA members?
No! This CE is available to all CVMA members for free as a member benefit, and is available for a fee for non-members.
What else do I need to know about the new requirement?
Where can I read more about the new substance use prevention training requirements?
Veterinarians can find more information on the requirements in Rule 1.2(G) on page 9 of the new Rules.
Who can I contact for more information?
For more information about the new requirements, please contact the State Board of Veterinary Medicine at email@example.com. For additional questions about the CE specifically, please contact CVMA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
