The Progressive Control Practitioners Network aims to provide tailored training covering all aspects of working on FMD control through the FAO/EuFMD/OIE Progressive Control Pathway for Foot-and-Mouth Disease (PCP-FMD). Participants are able to choose from a combination of webinars, discussion fora and interactive training exercises, and a different topic is covered each month. The network aims to provide practical solutions to real-world challenges. Participants are rewarded for their training efforts by three levels of training recognition.

Who is the network for?

Those working on all aspects of FMD control in countries which are not free of FMD. As an introduction to the network, those enrolling should complete our "Introduction to the Progressive Control Pathway" e-learning.
