EDEN Animal Agrosecurity and Emergency Management Course

<<go back to main page>>

Promotional Flyer located here: Course Flyer

Local Elected Officials, CEU's: 7 hours

First, we are presenting the EDEN Animal Agrosecurity and Emergency Management Course at three different locations. This two-day seminar will prepare attendees with the knowledge and skills necessary to:

  • Apply emergency management principles to animal emergencies
  • Recognize threats, identify vulnerabilities, and establish an action plan for animal disasters
  • Partner with interagency representatives in an interdisciplinary effort to address animal emergency issues


The seminars will be conducted at the following locations/dates:


Each seminar will be held from 12:00noon to 5:00pm on the first day and 9:30am to 12:30pm on the second day local time. We hope these start/end times make it easier on you to get your duties in the office accomplished. Participants may bring their lunch (if desired) on the first day and eat during the seminar.

We encourage you to invite local stakeholders including elected officials, commodity group representatives, emergency managers, health officials, and others who recognize the need for improved animal biosecurity and emergency management education in the community.

This seminar will double as a “train-the-trainer” opportunity for you to use the materials presented and conduct county programs on animal agrosecurity issues. Upon completion of each seminar, all Extension Agents in attendance will receive a robust Instructor Guide and CD that include complete speaker notes, videos, applied activity guidelines, guest speaker suggestions, etc. The lessons are modular and can be presented independently if you do not wish to present the course in its entirety. By attending the seminar, you are not obligated to present the materials in your county, but you will be provided with the tools and training if you decide to do so.

All participants will receive instructions to take a final exam and receive a certificate of completion. CEU’s have been approved {7 hours}for elected officials (hours accrued go towards pay incentives – great recruiting tool for you to use) and the trainings are also listed in the in-service catalog for Extension Agents (8 hours of credit).

The EDEN Animal Agrosecurity and Emergency Management Course is an excellent introduction to the EDEN Strengthening Community Agrosecurity Planning Workshop that will held in June (see below for details). 

Please sign-up in the Extension in-service catalog no later than May 1 for the seminars. If you invite stakeholders to attend, please have them register with Kevin Horn by May 1 at (859) 257-1846 or There is no fee to attend these seminars.


If you have any questions, please contact Ricky Yeargan (859) 323-9277 or or Andrea Husband (859) 257-7868 or

We appreciate your support of our agrosecurity trainings and we look forward to working with you to get Kentucky’s counties better prepared.
