Aviagen has announced that applications for the next Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) School modules are now open. Demand is expected to be high with previous courses all being oversubscribed.

 The next modules will continue the plan of holding the school in different locations to improve accessibility for all students. The Aviagen broiler school will take place February 16-22 in Edinburgh, Scotland, while the Aviagen hatchery school will be held March 15-21 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

"The EMEA School has proven to be very popular and a great success. We have had students coming back to repeat modules or sign up for other areas of the course as they have found it so interesting and helpful to their work," said Nick Spenceley, course director. "We've continued to develop and adapt the course content based on feedback from previous groups and we are confident that the quality of the course is unsurpassed in the market."

Key topics will include data handling and good flock health as part of the broiler module while maximizing chick quality and egg handling will be just two of the areas covered by the hatchery team.

More details on the courses can be found on the Aviagen website with leaflets on the broiler module and hatchery module available. Feedback from previous attendees can be found on the Aviagen EMEA School webpage. Interested parties can contact school@aviagen.com and also speak to their local Aviagen representative for more details.
