Full course description

In this course, we're going to think about how people, tools, supplies, and equipment coming into a farm pose a potential risk for pathogen introduction. All of these things are part of daily operations, so it is important to understand where they are coming from, what they're going to be used for, and if and how we can decontaminate them.

Understanding the pathogens concerned with different vectors of transmission, how to decontaminate them, and what to do with different types of equipment that might be more expensive or difficult to decontaminate is a key part of building an effective biosecurity plan.

This is a self-paced course. You may start and finish the course at any time. Upon successful completion of this course, you will be granted one hour of continuing education (CE). College of Veterinary Medicine is an authorized CE provider, and our courses are equivalent to RACE approved. This course is expected to take one hour to complete.

This course is 100% online. All the lectures and assessments are on-demand to meet your busy schedule.
