Veterinary Services Training

Veterinary Services (VS) training is highly specialized in the areas of animal health, import and export, domestic and foreign disease diagnosis and management, emergency response, epidemiology, and VS information systems. The Professional People Training team uses classroom-based, blended, and virtual delivery modalities to provide training not only for VS employees, but also for VS partners and stakeholders from the industry, state, and federal entities. Some training sessions engage participants in hands-on laboratory practice in addition to interactive discussions and presentations.
