PQA & TQA certification

 At this time, due to COVID-19 guidelines, PQA+ and TQA in-person certification sessions have not been pre-scheduled for the entire 2021 year, but will be scheduled as we go throughout the year based on current COVID-19 guidelines at specific times.

However, we have scheduled one PQA+ and TQA certification day per month via Zoom to provide interaction for those who like the "live" contact:
  • Wednesday, May 19
PQA+ certification sessions are scheduled from 9 a.m. to noon and TQA from 1 to 4 p.m.

Certification sessions are free, but NOTE pre-registration is required in order to get Zoom connection details. To pre-register contact either Diane DeWitte ( or 507-384-1745; by either phone call or text) or Sarah Schieck Boelke ( or 320-235-0726 ext. 2004). If you are not familiar with Zoom, we will provide some helpful tips beforehand so your connection to the certification course is seamless.

PQA+ and TQA certification can be completed online in a self-paced non-Zoom course too. If you wish to complete your certification this way, please reach out to us, your University of Minnesota Swine Extension Educators Sarah Schieck Boelke and Diane DeWitte to gain access online.
