Support increase of CE hours

Our world is constantly changing, as well as many professions around us. The LVT profession is no different. New research on products and treatments are and will continue to be ongoing. I believe it is important for people to continue to educate themselves in order to provide the utmost care to animals, as well as a variety of options to their clients. Ultimately, it is the client's decision as to how to care for their animal and if we continue to stay on top of what is out there, we can at least provide our clients with all the available options so they can make an informed and educated decision. We have many options for completing our CE, as well as many free options; therefore, it should not be difficult to go from 6 to 8 hours of CE. I am currently staying at home with my young twins, but I do not have any issues with obtaining the required 6 CE hours and then some. The more I can educate myself, the better.
