If a state 4-H office, state FFA office, or youth livestock/animal related organization wishes to provide YQCA in-person, instructor-led trainings for youth served, that option is available at no cost to the organization.
YQCA gives organization tools to deliver quality assurance training to students through in-person, instructor-led workshops.
OFFERING INSTRUCTOR-LED TRAININGS
In order to offer instructor-led trainings, a state or national organization must sign an agreement with YQCA. This agreement details the requirements for a YQCA instructor-led training that must be fulfilled by the organization and their instructors.
In the agreement, a single contact person for the organization must be identified. This person will be responsible for submitting qualified instructors to YQCA and monitoring their compliance with the instructor guidelines as outlined in the agreement.
Instructors must be an extension professional, agriculture education instructor or veterinarian. Volunteers may be utilized by these instructors to assist in their trainings. The volunteer policy can be found here.
All organization agreements and instructor cerifications expire in September, and may be renewed beginning October 1st. Instructors must complete and pass an online training with YQCA annually and agree to the terms and conditions of curriculum use.
