Quality Assurance and Ethics course - All 4-H members enrolled in an animal project area (beef, dairy, cats, dogs, goats, horses, poultry, rabbits, sheep, and swine) are required to complete the online Quality Assurance and Ethics course one time in order to stay enrolled in an animal project area. Members who don’t complete the certification before the show will be removed from the project and not be allowed to show. Anyone who has already taken the certification does not need to retake the test. The local office has a list of those already certified. This rule applies to 4-H members who exhibit live animals AND poster exhibits.
