PT Recertification Manual

This manual helps those who are seeking to re-certify their Blood Testing Status (required every 5 years in Iowa).  Each Section reviews material covered in the Iowa Poultry Blood Testing School. By reviewing these presentations you will be prepared to pass the Recertification Exam.  

Those who are attending the Blood Testing School for the first time are welcome to review the presentations below.  This will give you a better understanding of the material when it is covered in class. Taking the exam online is only available to current testers whom are re-certifying.
