Increasing CE requirements for LVTs

Continuing education is essential to staying current with medical standards, and often the best source and most useful information in veterinary medicine.  CE is also very easy to come by, and is often offered by local and regional organizations at no charge.  An increase in required hours from 6 hours to 8 hours is not a lot to ask, especially when it is so critical to keeping LVTs at the top of their game.
