Once registered in the PAACO Swine Welfare Auditor Training, there is homework to facilitate preparation for both the exam and the instruction delivered face to face.

Download this checklist to track your progress with the homework to be completed before your in-person PAACO training. This homework is important for in-class discussion and the final exam on the last day of the training. We estimate that preparation will take between 1 and 2 days and recommend completing well in advance of your training date.

Please record all relevant test scores on the provided checklist and other answers on the homework packets provided. Bring your results and comments to your in-person training.
