COOP Training Modules

COOP has partnered with the International Poultry Welfare Alliance (IPWA) to develop online training modules for the IPWA-developed Key Welfare Indicator Guides.


Who is COOP Academy for?

The target audience for each course includes higher education learners, industry professionals, and executive teams looking to advance knowledge, skill sets, and leadership ability in the area of welfare. Some courses do require prerequisites, or a demonstration of understanding of basic concepts prior to enrollment.

It is recommended to use a computer for the best viewing experience. Make sure you have a high bandwidth, low latency internet connection to avoid slow response times and pixelated images. For video, we recommend a bandwidth of 3 Mbps for regular video or 5 Mbps for HD and latency less than 50ms. Generally, performance is good over wifi if latency is less than 100ms. 
Check your speed and latency

Prior to enrollment, learners must complete an application. Applicants who are approved will be provided access to the course catalog. Enrollment can take up to 2 weeks to process.
