Tuberculosis Certification Testing for Bovine Practitioners
Please take the online course developed by Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA) Animal Health Program. WSDA would like to thank the California Department of Food and Agriculture for allowing us to use their TB video in our training.
WSDA will monitor and track registrants in order to provide them with a certificate upon completion. A score of 100% is required to become certified and should you not pass, WSDA will provide consultation for free from one of their field veterinarians in order to become certified.
It is the responsibility of each participant to determine if online courses are accepted for CE credit by their State Licensing Board.
