PQA+ Advisor certification

Are you looking to become a PQA+ Advisor? PQA+ Advisors are the educators who work directly with producers to educate them on the PQA+ program and will help producers obtain PQA+ certification and PQA+ site status at their respective production sites.

A PQA+ Advisor training date is planned for:
  • November 12 - 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., online via Zoom

*NOTE this training was originally scheduled for in-person but due to University of Minnesota and MN Department of Health COVID policies, this training has now transitioned to online.

Individuals wishing to attend the training session must meet the qualifications to become a certified PQA+ Advisor. Qualifications include:

Be a veterinarian, Extension Specialist, or Ag Educator (for the purposes of PQA+, the definition of an Ag Educator is a person who spends full time in adult education or at least 50% time in production training)

Have a DVM or B.S. in Animal Science (or equivalent)

Have two years of recent documentable swine production experience

Certification is free to attend but pre-registration is required by November 5 by submitting a completed application to Sarah Schieck Boelke at
