The Ohio Poultry Association (official state agency, NPIP) and the Ohio Department of Agriculture are combining efforts to organize Pullorum-Fowl Typhoid plate agglutination tester training classes. Whether your certification is due to expire or you have expressed interest in becoming a newly certified Pullorum tester, we are inviting you to participate in the training program.
You must be 18 years of age to become a certified tester.
There is a charge of $50 per student to offset program costs. There is an additional $5 fee for first time participants. Your certification is valid for 5 years. If your certification is due to expire in 2019, you will need to attend this training to maintain certification. If this is your first time being certified, you will physically test a bird.
A BIRD WILL BE PROVIDED FOR YOU. DO NOT BRING ANY POULTRY TO THE CLASS.
Each person needs to please bring a lawn chair to class as chairs may not be provided.
Information on times and locations of classes as well as registration materials can be found here.
