Special 3-CE Hour Event
Arizona Opioid Epidemic Act:
Overview and Information on the Opioid
Epidemic for the Veterinary Professional
In the renewal cycle ending 12/31/18, licensees should make their best effort to comply with this new requirement. However, per the Board's website, the Board understands licensees may have already completed their 20 required hours and/or may not be able to attend CE to comply with this new requirement, thus, the Board is unlikely to take disciplinary action if a licensee has not completed the 3 hours of opioid, substance use disorder, addiction-related CE in this cycle. It will be expected in the 2020 renewal cycle.
