Online FAMACHA© Certification
In March 2016, the University of Rhode Island began offering online FAMACHA© certification. Due to the restrictions imposed by Covid 19, several other institutions began offering online FAMACHA© certification in 2020.
Online FAMACHA© certification is a multi-part process. It usually involves watching a video on integrated parasite management and proper FAMACHA© technique. There is usually follow-up to the videos: a survey or quiz. Participants are required to make a video demonstrating proper FAMACHA© technique. Once course requirements are met, a Certificate of Competence is issued and the participant is eligible to purchase a FAMACHA© card.
