AAHA | Learning

VetFolio Accredited Member Benefit

An update from AAHA regarding VetFolio

VetBloom and the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) are excited to announce the upcoming launch of the AAHA | Learning platform. This will take the place of the existing VetFolio platform being utilized until June 30, 2019.

Provided as an exclusive AAHA member benefit, the new AAHA | Learning platform will be powered and hosted by VetBloom, a digital learning ecosystem from Ethos Veterinary Health (Ethos). At launch, your free membership will include access to more than 50 hours of non-sponsored RACE-approved technical CE for veterinarians and technicians. But that’s only the start!

With courses available in a variety of formats ranging from interactive case-based learning modules and virtual simulations to podcasts, webinars, and more, VetBloom sets the industry standard for creating innovative and engaging content using cutting-edge learning technologies. The collaboration will open the door for AAHA to provide its own industry-leading educational resources to more than 4,400 accredited hospitals across Canada and the United States in fresh, relevant, and transformative ways.

What will change for accredited members who use VetFolio? AAHA-accredited members will receive complimentary practice team subscriptions to AAHA | Learning (powered by VetBloom) as a part of their AAHA-accredited membership starting July 1, 2019. This is part of AAHA’s commitment to ensuring AAHA-accredited practices have access to a robust set of accredited member benefits.

Additional AAHA | Learning platform benefits include:

  • Continued access to high-quality existing AAHA CE, including AAHA's guidelines.
  • The option to upgrade to a premium-level subscription that provides access to hundreds of hours of CE for veterinarians and technicians as well as state-of-the-art, advanced courses.
  • An easy-to-use, mobile-friendly interface and user experience that enables AAHA members to access their CE directly from their AAHA account.
  • Customer support directly through the knowledgeable AAHA team.

While these benefits will be available when the platform launches, new feature additions will be ongoing and content updates will occur regularly.

What does this mean for you?

This new offering will take the place of your VetFolio subscription as a member benefit, effective July 1.

Shortly, you will receive information from both AAHA and VetFolio regarding any steps needed to transfer your AAHA-specific course history (including CE that is currently in progress). We do encourage you to complete any unfinished AAHA-related courses on VetFolio before July 1 for the most seamless transition.

As an accredited member, you may also wonder:

Will I still have a free subscription to VetFolio?
Your free subscription to VetFolio will end on June 30 and will be replaced by your free subscription to AAHA | Learning (powered by VetBloom) on July 1. This will be a seamless transition in CE availability.

Will I receive a free subscription to AAHA | Learning?
Absolutely! Your free subscription to AAHA | Learning (powered by VetBloom) will begin on July 1, 2019.

What do I need to do before July 1?
Members will need to download any personal content from VetFolio before July 1. This includes your CE certificates of completion!

What if I'm in the middle of a course? 
Your free access to VetFolio will end on June 30. We strongly encourage our members to finish courses and download CE certificates prior to July 1. Though we do not know how much of a grace period (if any) will be given to members with a VetFolio subscription, members can contact Laura Shively, AAHA's instructional coordinator for learning programs, to ensure all enrollments are accounted for on AAHA | Learning. Laura will also make all efforts to return you to the same progress status in your course. 

Will I have to purchase AAHA premium content courses again?
No! You will not have to pay for AAHA premium content that you have already purchased on VetFolio. 

Will everyone on my team still be able to access AAHA | Learning as a part of our complimentary subscription?
Yes!

Will there be any downtime or disruption in my access to online CE during this transition time?
No–the transition will be seamless for you with no disruption in service.

Will I still be able to access the same AAHA courses as I did before?
Yes! Our AAHA Premium Content courses will be available exclusively on the AAHA | Learning portal.

Will I still be able to access AAHA content on VetFolio?
AAHA will no longer have content on VetFolio, so we encourage you to finish courses and download CE certificates prior to July 1.

My AAHA-accredited practice doesn’t currently use VetFolio–how can we go about signing up for this free AAHA | Learning member benefit?
You will log in to your aaha.org account. When you initially access AAHA | Learning, your account will automatically be created.

We feel confident that this change in ownership will open the door for the future growth of AAHA | Learning as the profession’s go-to online CE platform, and that you’ll love AAHA | Learning even more as AAHA continues to expand our offerings.
