Kansas is an odd state. According to their practice act, there is no requirement for CE for technicians. However, when the Board of Veterinary Examiners send out the annual renewal they ask for either 4 or 10 (No pattern, it varies from year to year) hours of CE each year. It is strictly on the honor system.
