About the course

The Australian Johne’s disease MAPs are a key strategy in the control of Johne’s Disease in Australia. AHA maintains a MAP training program and associated resources to assist veterinarians to complete the training necessary to meet the requirements of the MAP. Veterinarians wishing to obtain approved status as MAP veterinarians are required to meet a number of prerequisites which include current veterinary registration, prior APAV accreditation and completion of MAP training.

What you’ll learn

This MAP course is recommended for veterinarians wishing to become MAP-accredited veterinarians for SheepMAP as part of meeting their training requirements. Veterinarians who are working with beef and dairy cattle producers or goat owners may also wish to do this training (however APAV is not essential for them).

This course takes approximately 2 hours to complete.
