As part of the 2013 International Production & Processing Expo education line-up, Pennsylvania State University and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association will host a new Poultry Handling and Transportation Quality Assurance “Train the Trainer” Workshop for poultry transporters and catch crews. The registration fee for the workshop is $250 and is limited to 30 participants.
The Poultry Handling and Transportation Quality Assurance (PHTQA) program provides third party certification training, which gives employees and contract crews an understanding of poultry welfare, good management practices and biosecurity, emergency planning, media training and preparation for outside audits. In conjunction with IPPE, PHTQA is pleased to offer a combined certification and “Train the Trainer” workshop specifically for those individuals wishing to become PHTQA certified trainers.
The 2013 IPPE, one of the world's largest poultry, feed, and meat industry events, will be held from January 29-31, 2013, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA.
