Quality Assurance Online Training for Livestock, Rabbit, & Poultry Exhibits

New QA how to sheet for 2016

Plan on showing livestock, dairy, rabbit, or poultry at County Fair? Quality Assurance (QA) online classes will be required before you show, starting this year. Three completed certificates are due June 15th to show at fair.

In order for all youth to have similar trainings, online courses have been developed. If you don't have access to the internet, let the office know and we will work to find access to internet.

In a nutshell:

*Online course is REQUIRED for all 4-H livestock exhibitors (beef, sheep, goat, rabbit, poultry, dairy, and swine) to show at county fair. 3 modules DUE June 15th (print your certificates as proof and mail to the Extension Office).
*Participants must complete 3 modules a year (they choose which 3) for their age division. Youth can work ahead–¦ if they do work ahead, those modules will be applied toward future quality assurance requirements. New Moodle Course users will enter "Nebraska" for the enrollment key.
*You will need to create an account, then follow the instructions to the link for the online classes.
*Step-by-step instructions to sign up for online QA training here. County codes are Blaine (BLN), Thomas (THM), Hooker (HOK), and Grant (GRT).
*QA ensures a safe, wholesome food product for the consumer! Let's do our part!

Hints and tips:
*Print off the directions for QA Training. The detailed instructions make the process much easier.
*Write down your newly created user name and password, so you don't forget them and can log in later.
*Type in "Livestock Quality Assurance" and look for the Nebraska QA training. Several states are listed under Quality Assurance, but you want Nebraska's.
*The enrollment key is "Nebraska" and the "N" must be capitalized to work.
*Click on your age division on the left hand side. The modules will show up.
*There are several modules, but you can choose 3 to complete a quiz on.
*The topics have a video to watch, supporting materials, and a quiz. Some topics have a practice quiz, but the practice quiz won't count as a completed module.
*Take the quiz after watching the short video. Click "next", then "submit all and finish" if you are sure of your answers. Your score should appear. If you received an 80% or higher, print your certificate.
*The certificates are listed on the left-hand side under the topic. Click on the certificate to open.
*Trouble printing your certificate? Try another computer. Still not printing? Write down the name of the quizzes you completed, your score, and the date and call the Extension Office.
