"Train to Contain" - A New APHIS Biosecurity Training Module
October 21, 2016

USDA's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service this week announced a new biosecurity training module titled Train to Contain. The module, which was developed by APHIS's Veterinary Services program, provides an interactive learning experience, going beyond the usual slide-based training to keep the learner more engaged.

The course is designed to provide a general understanding of the biosecurity principles and best practices to apply when investigating animal diseases and to prepare responders for hands-on training in biosecurity processes and procedures.

The training is available at www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/ourfocus/emergencyresponse/sa_tools_and_training/ct_aphis_role_emergency_decontamination_training.
