Shortage of VetsIn order to cover as many PICTs as possible in a short time, SPC is embarking on a training of trainers programme for selected trainers from American Samoa, FSM, Fiji, Niue, PNG, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Vanuatu and Wallis&Futuna. These trainers will then be able to undertake training sessions within their respective countries. In future they can also be called upon to undertake training sessions in other PICTs.

The overall objective of the workshop is to support a sustainable regional animal health and production distance education delivery system; develop a PARAVET programme that integrates animal health, distance education with in-country practical skills training; develop regional resource of national animal health and production trainers who will deliver intensive practical skills training and also to ensure developing sustainable education and training system that satisfies trainee, employer and national government requirements.
