Ongoing Training Opportunities

Veterinary Accreditation

In order to conduct regulatory work, such as official TB testing and signing certificates of veterinary inspection, veterinarians must also be accredited by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Before being accredited, you must complete an accreditation seminar in the state where you practice. You may also need certifications specific to the state where you practice.

The Wisconsin office of the USDA-Veterinary Services and the Division of Animal Health in the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) offer this seminar twice a year: An evening session at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine and a later session, usually at DATCP’s Madison headquarters. The additional certification training may be online or in-person. 

Find out more about our accreditation seminars. 

Cervid TB Training

U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection require that sample collection for the cervid TB serologic test be performed by approved cervid TB accredited veterinarians. Veterinarians must complete USDA training on sample collection and test submission for the CervidTB Dual Path Platform (DPP) test before being authorized to submit samples for testing. Veterinarians interested in becoming approved providers can start by viewing the Implementation Presentation​.​  USDA approved cervid TB accredited veterinarians
