Poultry Handling and Transportation “Train the Trainer” Workshop

Wed. January 27| 8:00 AM - 2:00 PM | Room B-312

Space is limited to 30 participants

The Poultry Handling and Transportation (PHT) program is a certification training for poultry transporters and catch crews. It was developed by a team of poultry scientists and veterinarians from Pennsylvania State University, USDA and transportation industry professionals and is currently managed by the U.S. Poultry and Egg Association.  PHT training gives employees and contract crews an understanding of poultry welfare, good management practices and biosecurity, emergency planning, media training and preparation for outside audits. Attendees will also develop tools to train non-English-speaking (primarily Spanish) employees.

In conjunction with the International Poultry Expo, PHT is pleased to offer a combined certification and “Train the Trainer” workshop specifically for those individuals wishing to become PHT certified trainers. In addition to attending the workshop and passing the certification exam, there are additional prerequisites for becoming a PHT certified trainer, listed on the PHT website at www.uspoultryhandling.org. For questions regarding the PHT program, contact Rafael Rivera at rrivera@uspoultry.org
