Vet Ed points
The Vet Ed points system is the AVA’s easy to use, professionally recognised system for members to track and record their continuing professional development points.
If you attend AVA or Vet Ed approved events, your points will be added to your statement automatically. To notify the AVA of other continuing professional development activities you have participated in, you can submit points yourself online through Manage profile.
You can also complete the latest AVJ Vet Ed quiz.
Benefits of the Vet Ed points system
Your Vet Ed statement can be used as evidence of your continuing professional development activities when renewing your registration with your state veterinary registration board. Each state has different requirements regarding continuing professional development for registration - check the Australian Veterinary Boards Council website for more details on individual states' requirements.
How to earn Vet Ed points
The AVA offers a number of ways for members to earn Vet Ed points through continuing professional development activities.
You can find out how many points different activities can earn in the Vet Ed points allocation table.
How to receive points automatically
You will automaticaly receive points for any AVA continuing professional development event you attend, or for outside events that have Vet Ed approval, as long as you have given the organisers your AVA member number. Your details are submitted by the organisers, and the points will automatically appear on your statement, usually within two weeks of the event.
Your AVJ quiz points are automatically uploaded to your member record and appear on your Vet Ed statement as soon as you’ve successfully completed a quiz.
How do I submit my own points?
You can upload Vet Ed points to your own record at any time and the points will appear on your Vet Ed statement immediately.

- Log on as a member in the boxes at the top right of your screen. (If you’ve forgotten your AVA username or password, contact National Office for help on 1300 137 309 or by email)
- Underneath your name in the top right corner is the ‘Manage profile’ link. Click on that.
- Select the tab along the top – ‘Vet Ed points’
