Our program is based on the most current method of animal CPR which was developed by emergency veterinarians. This class is designed to teach veterinary professionals how to administer emergency CPR and first aid to an animal when it arrives at the veterinary facility. 

The PetCPR+ Advanced Certification program is designed for veterinary professionals specifically.  Veterinary Technicians, Assistants, Veterinarians and support personnel will find that the material covered in our advanced program better suited for their needs.

Continuing Education Credits for Veterinary Technicians

  If you are a veterinary technician and want to receive RACE approved CE credit for completing this program we encourage you to create your free RACEtrack account with AAVSB. This site will sync to RACEtrack, the AAVSB’s CE tracking system, and provide a seamless connection between CE providers, licensees, and regulators. You will be able to access all of your CEU in one location and submit them to your state board.  If you choose not to use RACEtrack you will be required to write your CVT, RVT or LVT number and state of issue on the class roster with the instructor so we can provide you with a manual certificate.
