General FAQ

How do I sign up?

It’s easy! Go to “Register Now” at the top of the foodarmor.org homepage and set up your account. Once you subscribe you have access to all available courses! Everytime you log in, your enrolled courses will show up on your homepage.

Do I get continuing education credits?

Yes! All Food Armor courses are RACE approved and once you complete a course you will receive a CE certificate on your My Learning page.  Courses take 20-25 minutes each. Make sure to keep your certificates available for your veterinary license renewal.

Current coursework offers 0.5 RACE approved CE credits per module. You currently can earn up to 6 credits! Additional courses are scheduled to launch in Fall of 2020 and a current subscription provides you access to all of them.

How many courses do I need to get/maintain my Food Armor Accreditation?

Once you take four courses you will earn your Food Armor Accreditation. You will receive a Food Armor Accreditation number and certificate in your email. Please allow 2-3 weeks processing time.

To maintain that Accreditation, you just need to take four courses each year. New courses are released every year so you should have a wide variety to choose from. Remember, all of these courses offer valuable RACE-approved continuing education credits!

**Food Armor Accreditation is currently limited to veterinarians.** 

Can I take the courses in person vs online?

Yes you can. Food Armor offers in-person trainings periodically throughout the year and throughout the country. You can request information about upcoming in-person trainings by contacting us!

Will there be more courses available in the future?

Yes there will! Food Armor plans to launch 5-10 courses each year. By subscribing to the learning platform, you will have access to all courses to earn continuing education credits specific to antimicrobial stewardship.

If you aren’t interested in a full subscription you can purchase individual courses. You will still earn CE credits with each course you successfully complete.

What if I am already Food Armor Accredited or have been trained by Food Armor in the past?

All veterinarians who are currently Food Armor Accredited (under the old requirements), or those that have been trained via our in-person Phase I sessions in the 2019 and 2020 calendar years will automatically maintain/receive their Food Armor Accreditation.

Future renewals of that Food Armor Accreditation will be required using the new requirements (Successful completion of 4 online courses per year).

Veterinarians impacted will have until their current expiration date to renew and complete courses to remain in good standing.
