National Veterinary Accreditation Program (NVAP)


If you have not completed your APHIS Approved Supplemental Training, you are not ready to renew. Please go to How do I take Training Modules? to complete your required training.

You may complete your training anytime during your three-year renewal cycle but may not apply to renew your accreditation until six months prior to your assigned Accreditation Renewal Date (ARD).

If you do not know your ARD, contact your local Veterinary Services (VS) NVAP Coordinator in the State where your business address is located. The National Veterinary Accreditation Program sends e-mail reminders six, three, and one month prior to your ARD. If you prefer to receive one reminder via USPS three months prior to your ARD in lieu of e-mail reminders, contact your VS NVAP Coordinator and request that they remove your email address from our records.

If you perform accredited duties in more than one State, it is only necessary to renew your accreditation one time.

I want to read written instructions demonstrating how to apply for renewal on-line (pdf 70kb).

I want to watch a ten-minute video on the renewal process.

I want to apply for renewal using a paper VS Form 1-36A application (pdf 151kb), which I will sign in ink and mail to my NVAP Coordinator.

Still have questions? See Additional Information or contact your local NVAP Coordinator.
