Your PQA Plus Advisor may not be the same person that you used for PQA. Your advisor will likely be a veterinarian, and Extension specialist or an ag educator with a Bachelor of Science degree. It also could be someone with the equivalent of a degree in animal science or a related field, who has two years of recent, documentable swine production experience.
New PQA Plus Certification (or recertification if expired) requires face-to-face training with a PQA Plus Advisor.
Renewal PQA Plus Certification can be completed through face-to-face or online training. To be eligible to recertify through an online course/exam:
- Contact a certified advisor before current certification expires
- Provide the advisor with an email address for the purpose of sending online training instructions
- Complete online training within 30 days of receiving access to train
