Session and exam will take approximately five hours to complete.

The application deadline for Iowa Pork Industry Center's next Pork Quality Assurance Advisor certification session is approaching, and those interested in attending should submit their application soon. The session date is Friday, April 9, and the application deadline for this virtual session is Friday, March 26.

Iowa State Extension swine veterinarian Chris Rademacher organizes these sessions, and said the session, including exam will take approximately five hours to complete.

“All of the material will be presented through a Zoom session and that access information will be shared with participants closer to the session date," he said.

Qualification information is available on the two-page application form, which is available as both a fillable pdf document and a word document on the certification page on the IPIC website. Applicants may use either version.

There is a five-person minimum, and no individual spot is guaranteed until the application is approved and specific payment is accepted by IPIC. The cost is $85 per person and includes all materials and online access. The session begins at 9 a.m. CST

Five hours of CE credit have been approved by the Iowa Board of Veterinary Medicine for this session.

Additional sessions are also scheduled for June 11, Aug. 13, Oct. 8 and Dec. 10.
