Increasing CE requirements for LVTs

I am in favor of increasing CE hoursfrom 6 to 8 hours,and heres why. It not only helps the LVT to stay up to date with current new treatment techniques, but it helps all of the staff of the veterinary practice. As an assitant to our LVT she often shares her experiences and new information and everyones knowledge expands. This is very important for client education and providing the best medical care for our patients.
