 Participants will be limited to the first 30 applicants, and there must be a minimum of 15 participants to hold the training course.

Only persons who have completed this course and passed the examinations can be fully certified as a CAET to perform euthanasia with sodium pentobarbital and be eligible to obtain controlled substance permits from state and federal agencies in order to purchase and maintain controlled substances. If your animal control facility uses sodium pentobarbital for euthanasia of animals, your employees need to be certified to perform euthanasia without a licensed veterinarian on the premises.

It is strongly recommended that applicants for the certification course be familiar with basic CAET procedures before taking the CAET course.

To register for the CAET Training Course, one must first complete and submit the online CAET application along with all necessary supplemental documentation. Please visit www.lsbvm.org/app-caet to submit the online application. Each person registering for the course will receive more information prior to the course date. The course handbook will be mailed to applicants 2-3 weeks prior to the course.
