Practical pig husbandry qualification updated

We have revised and re-organised the pig industry Certificate of Competence in pig husbandry skills, with some changes to the assessment criteria and the learner manuals, which are now available. 
The Certificates of Competence are practical and relevant qualifications, covering stockmanship, welfare, pig husbandry skill and pig unit supervision. Candidates are assessed on farm and the assessment criteria are based on the demonstration of knowledge and practical skills. Key revisions include:
• Mandatory units on pig stockmanship and welfare and the safe use of veterinary medicines have been included in the pig husbandry skills learning manual folder (they were in separate folders before)
• The online written test has been removed to ensure the assessment and qualifications are practical throughout.
