The HSA provides training for establishments of all sizes, ranging from large to small-scale and hobby farmers, slaughtermen and university students. The HSA uses proven training material based on the latest science and legislative requirements.
The HSA provides relevant training for stockmen involved with handling animals during transport, in markets and for slaughter. Training may be arranged for part of the requirement for Slaughter Licenses. We also offer training for Animal Welfare Officers for poultry, pigs, fish and red meat animals. The courses can include theoretical and practical components.
HSA courses are run by licensed slaughtermen, who have both theoretical and practical knowledge of animal slaughter. Contact the HSA to discuss your particular training needs.
There are currently no upcoming HSA courses available for booking.
Important Information: If you are considering hosting or attending an HSA training course in 2013 that involves practical instruction and the opportunity to be assessed for competence as part of the procedure of applying for a registered slaughter licence, please read our flyer which discusses the potential outcomes of a forthcoming change in European legislation on the protection of animals at the time of killing. We recommend you read this flyer before you apply for a HSA course, so you are fully aware of the situation. The HSA will also ask venues to inform interested persons of this situation at the time of their enquiry and before the person applies for a place on an HSA course.
