ZOOM QA SESSIONS 

Zoom options are limited to 40 people.

Must register 24 hours in advance: 

If you have questions about QA please reach out to Jessica George at George.979@osu.edu.

These sessions will be capped at 40 participants each and youth will need to register in advance. Upon registering you will be emailed the link to attend the zoom.

You are also able to host a zoom session specifically for your club as long as it is taught by a certified instructor. Please let me know if you plan to do this. 

YOUTH CAN COMPLETE YQCA TRAINING ON-LINE.

If you are unable to attend one of the in-person training, you can complete the online training at yqca.org for a fee of $12/youth. Youth may complete the online YQCA course. This is the only approved online course. Youth must complete the correct course for their 4-H age. If youth plan to do this, please contact George.979@osu.edu so that we are sure to receive the correct completion information and can assure that youth select the correct course.

ASSISTANT INSTRUCTORS CAN RECEIVE TRAINING FOR CERTIFICATION TO TEACH QA VIA AN ONLINE COURSE.

If you would like to be certified to teach QA to your club or if you have someone else who you would like to teach it to your club, certification is available via an online course. All past Erie County Instructors are due for re-certification so if you plan to offer a club QA your instructor MUST BE CERTIFIED. This online course is simple to complete and can be done at your own pace, but enrolment only happens once a month. I need to send contact information for participants to Columbus by the 25th of each month for them to be enrolled in the next month’s course. Please contact me if you would like to be enrolled or learn more information about the course. Certification is good for 3 years.
