General Course Information

The California Temporary License Curriculum (CaTLC) is specifically designed to meet or exceed the requirements of California laws governing veterinary licensure in California. The California Veterinary Medicine Practice Act covers the requirements for veterinarians licensed in other states, Canadian provinces, or United States territories and wishing to become licensed in California via the reciprocity process. These requirements are covered in:

BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONAL CODE; DIVISION 2. Healing Arts; CHAPTER 11, Veterinary Medicine; ARTICLE 3, Issuance of Licenses; § 4848. Examination requirements; Waver; Temporary license; Extension of temporary license

CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS; TITLE 16. Professional and Vocational Regulations; DIVISION 20. Veterinary Medical Board; ARTICLE 2.5, Temporary Licenses; § 2021.3. California Curriculum—Content

This continuing education program provides an extensive overview of regionally important diseases in California and the unique aspects of practicing veterinary medicine in the state. It meets or exceeds the requirements of the California Curriculum (CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS; TITLE 16. Professional and Vocational Regulations; DIVISION 20. Veterinary Medical Board; ARTICLE 2.5, Temporary Licenses; § 2021.3. California Curriculum—Content) (http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/ccr.htm) for “qualified veterinarians” to obtain a permanent veterinary license in California via reciprocity. Please contact the California Veterinary Medical Board (www.vmb.ca.gov) for requirements to be considered a “qualified veterinarian” and information on all of the required items to complete the process.

A copy of the 2019 California Veterinary Medicine Practice Act will be available shortly after the start of 2019 at: https://store.lexisnexis.com/products/california-veterinary-medicine-practice-act-skuSKU50651/details (copy and paste the link into your web browser).

Veterinarians who wish to become licensed in California under the BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONAL CODE are required to complete the entire course. This is strictly enforced through mandatory presentation of state issued photo identification or passport as well as daily sign-in and sign-out verification and/or name badge scan. Absence from ANY portion of the curriculum for any reason will be considered an absence and certificate hours will be deducted accordingly; thus, not meeting the requirements set forth in the BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONAL CODE. The course provides 26.5 hours of continuing education credits over three days.

This program has been submitted for 26.5 hours of continuing education credit in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB RACE approval; however, participants should be aware that some boards have limitations on the number of hours accepted in certain categories and/or restrictions on certain methods of delivery of continuing education. Call (WesternU Continuing Education at 909-469-8299) for further information.

Course Topics

Topics covered in the CaTLC include those mandated in the CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS (http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/ccr.htm), specifically TITLE 16. Professional and Vocational Regulations; DIVISION 20. Veterinary Medical Board; ARTICLE 2.5, Temporary Licenses; § 2021.3. California Curriculum—Content. For the event, topics are organized in a manner designed to provide a flowing program arranged by species (please see the agenda).

California Veterinary License Requirements

For information on how this program is part of the licensure process, please contact the California Veterinary Medical Board at http://www.vmb.ca.gov/. Please search the website for “temporary license” or “reciprocity” for the most current documents. If further information is needed, please call the Board at 916-515-5220.

Relevant portions of the California Veterinary Practice Act include the following and can be found on the California website (http://www.ca.gov/), specifically, California laws and regulations section (http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes.xhtml).

BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONS CODE

§ 4848. Examination requirements; Waiver; Temporary license; Extension of temporary license

§ 4848.(b)(5) The applicant completes an approved educational curriculum on regionally specific and important diseases and conditions. The board, in consultation with the California Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA), shall approve educational curricula that cover appropriate regionally specific and important diseases and conditions that are common in California. The curricula shall focus on small and large animal diseases consistent with the current proportion of small and large animal veterinarians practicing in the state. The approved curriculum shall not exceed 30 hours of educational time. The approved curriculum may be offered by multiple providers so that it is widely accessible to candidates licensed under this subdivision.

National Veterinary Accreditation Program (Health Certificates)

The USDA and CDFA will provide an overview of the National Veterinary Accreditation Program (NVAP) at the CaTLC. Attendance at this presentation does NOT provide you Federal accreditation privileges. Non-accredited veterinarians who attend the CaTLC and want to be accredited in California must first complete the Initial Accreditation Training (IAT) then attend an Orientation Program. Veterinarians currently accredited in another state must complete a State-Specific (supplemental) Orientation to be authorized (accredited) in California. To start the IAT, register for an Orientation Program, or State-Specific Orientation, please contact the National Veterinary Accreditation Program Coordinator for California, Todd Carnes, at the Sacramento Area Office at 916-854-3903 or Todd.D.Carnes@aphis.usda.gov. Additional accreditation information can be found at the USDA, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, Veterinary Services (Animal Health) website (https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/ourfocus/animalhealth/nvap), and clicking on the “Veterinary Accreditation” link on the left side of the page.

(http://www.aphis.usda.gov/wps/portal/aphis/ourfocus/animalhealth/sa_vet_accreditation)

NVAP Orientation

During the USDA-APHIS-VS presentation at the CaTLC, topics that will be discussed include: 1) the Veterinary Services reorganization to assist practitioners in contacting the proper office for issues pertaining to animal movement, foreign and other animal disease issues, and animal disease traceability, 2) an overview of the National Veterinary Accreditation Program (NVAP), including the difference between Category I and Category II Accreditation, how to become accredited or authorized in CA and the requirements and timelines for renewal and 3) an overview of the interstate and international movement processes and Veterinary Services progress toward the acceptance and implementation of digital signatures and electronic certification. The presentation during CaTLC DOES NOT fulfill the Orientation requirement for accreditation. A separate NVAP Orientation will be offered the day prior to the start of CaTLC to enable practitioners to be accredited in California.

The NVAP California Orientation is the initial comprehensive seminar, which outlines the components of the accreditation program and the standards to which accredited veterinarians will be held. The following subject areas are included in the California Orientation:

  1. Federal animal health laws, regulations, and rules;
  2. Interstate movement of animals;
  3. Import and export requirements for animals;
  4. USDA animal disease eradication and control programs;
  5. Laboratory support in confirming disease diagnoses;
  6. Ethical/professional standards for an accredited veterinarian;
  7. Foreign animal disease awareness;
  8. Animal health emergency management;
  9. Animal health procedures, issues, and information resources relevant to California
  10. Assistance in completing the VS 1-36A (NVAP Application Form)

It is highly recommended that all attendees arrive and depart via the Ontario International Airport. The Ontario International Airport is approximately 9 miles away and will consistently require 25-30 minutes to travel to after the end of the event. Because the last session on the last day is not scheduled to end until 5:20 PM, your departure flight should not be scheduled to depart prior to 7 PM.

If you chose to use Los Angeles International Airport, LAX is approximately 50 miles away and will take at least 1 hour and 15 minutes (depending on traffic) to travel to after the end of the event. Thus, your flight should not be scheduled to depart prior to 8:30 PM.
