Renewal Membership – $25.00

Certified Veterinary Technicians are required to re-certify every year by December 31st (for the upcoming year). Twelve (12) CE credits are required to re-certify. Submit your proof of CE Credits with your application.

  • Credits for 2016 Certification must be obtained between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015.
  • For 2016 the NHVTA will be moving to decrease our use of paper. We no longer require physical copies of your CEU. Please use the online form to submit your renewal application. You do not need to send us the physical copies. We will be auditing a percentage of our membership annually. It is your responsibility to keep your proof of CEU. In the event that you are audited you will be required to present proof of the CEU you obtained. If proof is not available your certification is subject to revocation.
  • If you submit more than 12 CEUs for any one year’s certification they will not carry over for use in the following year.
  • The NHVTA reserves the right to refuse to approve CE credit from seminars that were not approved by the NHVTA if these seminars are deemed to be inappropriate or of poor quality.
  • Renewals submitted after March 1st, 2016 will need to pay a $25 late fee before the paperwork is processed.
  • Please make sure you include an active email that you check on a regular basis on your application!

Lapsed Membership? – NHVTA Amnesty Policy for Technicians with Lapsed Certifications

The NHVTA offers an Amnesty Program for those technicians whose certification may have lapsed. Certification is considered lapsed if it is overdue by one year. Applicants must include an Amnesty Application Form for each year missed, listing 12 CEU for each year missed. The CEU’s do not have to be from the missed year, but 12 for each missed year are required. A total payment of $75 per year lapsed is required.

Note: Amnesty Program does not apply if you have a current certification/license in another state. If that is the case apply for reciprocity.

Time Limit: An NH certification will go into expired status if not renewed for 4 consecutive years. Expired certifications must appeal to the board for reinstatement and will be required to reapply for NH registration and meet all of the standard requirements.
