Earn 10 hours of RACE-approved CE

Pet euthanasia is among the most common procedures in veterinary medicine. However, it is surprising to note that most veterinary professionals are not formally trained in this area. To address this gap, the CAETA Peaceful Euthanasia Certification program has been designed to provide outstanding education in companion animal euthanasia. The main objective of this program is to enhance the overall experience of the pet, caregiver, and veterinary team during the euthanasia process.

Upon successful completion of the course and final exam, you will earn a prestigious credential as a Certified Peaceful Euthanasia Veterinarian (CPEV, for DVMs) or a Certified Peaceful Euthanasia Professional (CPEP, for other veterinary professionals). Additionally, participants will accrue 10 hours of RACE-approved continuing education credit (CE) recognized by the American Association of Veterinary State Boards (AAVSB).

Note: Yearly recertification will require 4 additional hours of CAETA CE. Please note that while this credential is a significant achievement, it does not replace the necessity of obtaining legal certification from your state veterinary board to perform euthanasia.
