Admission requirements

Candidates must hold a degree from a university, or an equivalent recognized institution of higher education, in veterinary medicine or animal sciences. If the diploma is not in one of the official languages of the WVEPAH – English, French or Spanish – a certified translation must be provided.

Candidates must already have experience in the field of poultry farming. Non-veterinarian participants will take part in all lessons and will benefit from the same services as those provided to veterinarians. However, as they are not under the authority of the OIE, they will not be able to take the Certificate exam. At the end of each module, all participants will receive an ‘Attestation of Participation’ (subject to meeting certain criteria).

Candidates must provide evidence that, during the program, they have been working full-time in the field of poultry farming, production, pathology, avian medicine, or poultry administration.

How to register for the Certificate Program?

The registration deadline is set according to the publication of the course program by the WVEPAH. Participation in distance learning between the two modules is mandatory in order to be eligible for the exam.
