Whether it is developing new skills, boosting knowledge or simply a timely refresher, we understand the importance of providing learning opportunities and sharing the most up-to-date information.

Timely offering

Animal disease recognition and response training has been consistently identified as a need by veterinary professionals and industry staff since the initial phase of the AHEM project began in 2016.

The continual evolution of serious animal health diseases reaffirms the need to offer convenient opportunities to keep knowledge and skills current.

This professional training complements existing, and emerging tools aimed at enhancing the Canadian livestock and poultry industry’s capacity to effectively recognize and respond to a serious animal disease event.
