Check your certification status

To check your PQA+ or TQA status, call the Pork Checkoff Service Center at 1-800-456-7675.

TQA helps swine transporters, producers and handlers understand how to handle, move and transport pigs and the potential impacts those actions have on pig well-being and pork quality. 

TQA handler certification training includes time for the exam.

TQA certification is good for three years. If you need TQA certification, you must re-certify every three years to keep your certification current.
