About the course

The Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) has created this free online course to provide information about the risks of FMD to Australia. Upon completion of the course, you will have a better understanding of what can be done to help prevent the virus infecting susceptible livestock, clinical signs to look out for, what to do if the disease is suspected and what would happen if we had an emergency response. The course emphasises the importance of prevention measures, early detection and reporting.

What you’ll learn

The course is relevant to anyone who works with livestock, as well as the wider community. It includes videos by industry leaders, activities and a short scenario-based quiz.

Having completed the course, learners should:

  • understand the risks FMD poses to our livestock industries and how to help prevent an outbreak
  • be able to recognise the signs of FMD in susceptible livestock and the importance of early reporting
  • understand what would happen if an FMD incident occurred in the future.
