    YARDLEY, Pa. — Veterinary Learning Systems, publisher of Veterinary Technician, The Complete Journal for the Health Care Team, recently announced that effective with the February 2009 issue, the continuing education (CE) credits offered in the monthly journal for veterinary technicians will be increased to 1.0 credit hour for each CE article.

    "The approval for increased CE credit reflects the commitment Veterinary Technician has to securing quality CE articles for our readers," says Marianne Tear, MS, LVT, chief technician editor of Veterinary Technician.

    "The authors, reviewers and editorial staff are all working together to provide the best CE possible," adds Tear, who is also veterinary technology program director at Baker College of Clinton Township in Michigan.

    "This increase in CE credits is right in line with our mission to promote and support the professionalism of technicians," says Marie Rosenthal, MS, executive editor of Veterinary Technician. "Veterinary Learning Systems is pleased that Alfred State reviewers believe in the quality of the educational articles that we provide."

    Previously, only a 0.5 CE credit hour was available per published CE article. CE credits are awarded by Alfred State College, a State University of New York (SUNY) College of Technology. After careful review, the college agreed to increase the amount of CE awarded for each article. VLS will continue to offer CE tests free to qualified technicians.
