Avian influenza virus (AIV): eLearning

This course is designed for poultry health and industry professionals, including vets and laboratory staff responsible for implementing diagnostic techniques. However, the course also includes interesting and informative modules of all aspects of avian influenza disease and will therefore appeal similarly to those with a general interest in the virus pathogenicity and clinical disease, epidemiology and control. The short, accessible nature of the course makes it ideal for vets and those working in the industry who are required to complete CPD as part of their role. This course is prepared in both English (UK) and Simplified Chinese and available for purchase as a highly accessible, online package.
