In support of CE increase for LVT

As a student veterinary technician, I am in support of increasing the number of CE hours for LVT's. The conferences are important for staying up to date on new information. There is so much to be learned not only from the conferences, but also from other technicians who know of different ways to perform tasks. This profession is growing and more people recognize what we do for the practice, and the CE hours are essential to us and our clients. Increasing the annual CE hours is not only beneficial to us, but also to our practice and all the pet owners we serve.
