Seeking registrations for new Biosecurity Micro-credential Pilot Programme

7 November 2018

In response to farmer driven feedback Primary ITO, together with DairyNZ and Federated Farmers, have developed a biosecurity micro-credential to enhance industry capability.

The programme is designed to give business owners and managers a general understanding of biosecurity, risk management and how to implement and improve safe practices.

To test the micro-credential Primary ITO are working with Franklin Vets and QCONZ to offer a free pilot workshop for dairy farmers who are responsible for the biosecurity measures in their workplace. The workshop will cover the biosecurity environment and current issues and how to develop a farm specific biosecurity plan. It also begins the process of a person gaining the micro-credential.

For more information, or to register your interest, contact Franklin Vets on (07) 8264838.
