FAMACHA© Workshops and Related Events
With the exception of veterinarians and other qualified animal health professionals, you must take an approved training in order to get certified in the FAMACHA© system and receive a FAMACHA© card. The table below lists upcoming FAMACHA© trainings. Workshops generally require RSVP (pre-registration) and payment of a registration fee. A FAMACHA© workshop is the same as a Smart Drenching or Integrated Parasite Management (IPM) workshop.
Please contact the webmaster at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to have a workshop added to the table. Please provide date, sponsor, location, and contact information. The instructor of the workshop must be approved by the consortium.
