PQA Plus Advisor recertification session
People who become certified as Pork Quality Assurance (PQA) Plus Advisors under the National Pork Board’s PQA Plus program are required to recertify every three years. That means those certified during the initial training period in 2007 need to complete a recertification training and testing session.
The Iowa Pork Industry Center (IPIC) at Iowa State University (ISU) has scheduled a recertification session for July 12 in Ames, US.
James McKean, IPIC associate director and ISU Extension swine veterinarian, said the session will be taught by ISU animal science and veterinary medicine faculty members who are certified PQA Plus trainers.
“The session is limited to the first 30 participants who preregister and pay the recertification fee of $50 per person,” McKean said. “Preregistration is strongly encouraged to ensure the new PQA Plus materials will be available for each participant, so no walk-ins will be accepted.”
