A set of Certificates of Competence qualifications in pig husbandry for producers is available from BPEX.
The qualifications are practical, relevant and can be delivered and assessed within the workplace. They have been designed by pig producers for pig producers and overcome the historical barriers to training, including off-site training courses, biosecurity concerns and lots of paper-based assessments.
