YQCA TRAINING


*PLEASE NOTE THE YQCA PLATFORM WILL BE TRANSITIONING MARCH 23rd 2022*
In order to participate in a youth livestock program (excluding horse, cavies & dogs) at any California Fair, all exhibitors 9 years of age and older must obtain annual certification in the Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) program or a comparable fair run program approved by the California Department of Food and Agriculture, Fairs and Expositions Branch. Those not certified through a youth education certification program on the issues of animal welfare, food safety and character education are not eligible to participate at a California Fair. Madera Fair has opted to require Mini Member exhibitors younger than 9 to take the YQCA training as well.

ONLINE vs INSTRUCTOR LED TRAINING

Online training costs $12 per exhibitor and may be completed at any time prior to entry deadline.

If you are looking to save a little, there are a number of instructor led training's that are currently being offered here in the valley which will cost $3 per exhibitor. This training will still require you to register in advance through the yqca.org website. A list of training's being offered locally is listed below, but since there are new ones being added all of the time, please visit yqca.org for current training's. Also, please be aware that people who are offering these instructor led training's are volunteering their time. If you attend one of these training's, please arrive early and make sure that your registration has been completed so that the class does not get held up.

For more information and to register to take the course, go to yqca.org
