WATT eLearning companion animal nutrition course receives RACE approval

WATT eLearning’s online pet food nutrition course, Building Blocks of Companion Animal Nutrition, was approved by the American Association of Veterinary State Boards’ Registry of Approved Continuing Education program. Petfood and veterinary professionals can log on to to sign up for immediate access to the course and earn six continuing education credits upon completion.
Building Blocks of Companion Animal Nutrition, developed by Linda P. Case, M.S., owner of AutumnGold Consulting, provides an introduction to the science of companion animal nutrition as well as the nutrient needs of dogs and cats. This specific online course is ideal for petfood and veterinary professionals who are either professionally required or seek to have a scientific understanding of basic nutrients and their functions, companion animal nutrient needs and feeding behaviors. Enrollment includes an accompanying textbook and certificate of completion for participants.
The American Association of Veterinary State Boards’ RACE program was developed to apply uniform standards related to providers and programs of continuing education in veterinary medicine. While continuing education requirements are not standardized among veterinary state boards, many states require continuing education credits for license renewal. This course meets the requirements for six hours of continuing education credit in jurisdictions that recognize AAVSB’s RACE approval. However, participants should be aware that some boards have limitations on the number of hours accepted in certain categories or restrictions on certain methods of delivery of continuing education.
