The Animal Ultrasound Association works in partnership with training providers in the USA and Canada to ensure the delivery of accurate and safe training courses for animal scanners. This can be breeders and farmers wanting to scan their own animals, or veterinarians looking to introduce ultrasound into their practice. In most areas of North America it is not possible to offer a commercial pregnancy scanning service for others unless you are a licensed veterinarian.
We appreciate that geography can be a barrier to accessibility for high quality training courses, and for this reason, we are making an increasing amount of course material available online, such as our ‘Ultrasound for Goat Pregnancy Scanning’ online course here. These courses combine text, diagrams and video clips to help you to master your ultrasound machine and improve your skills.
Our content is based upon almost a decade of award-winning training. Having trained hundreds of individuals from over 15 countries around the globe, we know how to present difficult concepts in an easy, digestible format. We are also aware of the challenges and pitfalls faced by new and experienced users of ultrasound alike, because whatever difficulties you may be having with your scanning, you can be sure that everybody else has been through – or is going through – the same as you.
If you have already been trained, or are you just beginning your ultrasound journey, AUA membership will support your ongoing learning and development.
