Olds College, in Alberta, Canada, is introducing a new certificate program dedicated to equine reproduction.

Launching in fall 2018, the application period opened Oct. 1 for the equine reproduction technician (ERT) certificate program.

The first of its kind in Canada, the ERT program is an eight-month blended learning certificate program aimed at providing graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to work in or operate an equine breeding facility. The program combines four months of online learning with four months of onsite hands-on training.

“This is an exciting opportunity for us to offer specialized training for people interested in equine reproduction,” said Marion Anderson, DVM, MS, equine science instructor and the ERT program instructor. “This program will allow anyone who wants to own, operate, or work in a breeding or foaling facility to gain the skills and experience necessary to be successful. It will also open doors for students in the equine science program, as they will have the opportunity to take the new ERT program to follow up their studies and become certified in equine reproduction
