Livestock Quality Assurance Training

The Livestock QA Team is proud to introduce the online version available to Nebraska 4-H'ers to complete their Livestock Quality Assurance Requirement.  Livestock Quality Assurance is a self-directed course designed for youth ages 8-18.  Participants will learn about good production practices and producing quality food products from taking this course.

The course has been divided into three levels, Junior (4-H Youth Ages 8-10), Intermediate (4-H Youth Ages 11-14), and Senior (4-H Youth Ages 15-18).  Each year youth will be required to complete three modules within their age level.  Youth are eligible to work ahead so that they will be done with Quality Assurance requirements until they reach the next age level.

Please watch the Quality Assurance YouTube Video that shows step by step how to register for QA training, complete the modules and then print/submit certificates.
