Enhancing skills with the latest information and training

Knowledge is the cornerstone of effective emergency management. With this in mind, we are focussed on providing convenient and accessible disease recognition and response training to veterinarians and private practitioners across Canada.

Beginning in Spring 2020, we will be offering an informative, online foot-and-mouth disease emergency preparedness course. 

Foot-and-Mouth Disease Emergency Preparedness Course

This course was developed by the European Commission and adapted to Canadian standards by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) in early 2019. 

Informative – Benefit from the latest information and developments in serious animal disease identification and response procedures as you work through five engaging units.

Interactive – Connect with international experts and regional colleagues during interesting webinars and discussion forums.

Beneficial – Enhance existing skills while collecting continuing education credits.

Convenient – Complete the self-paced course in just 10–12 hours from the comfort of your office or home.

The bilingual training program addresses:

  • Pathogenesis
  • Clinical diagnosis
  • Lab diagnosis
  • Biosecurity
  • Contingency planning in Canada
  • Vaccination
  • Field epi investigation
  • Scenario exercises

A certificate is awarded to all participants who successfully complete the online training and final assessment within the four-week window.

Registration coming soon.
