LUBBOCK, Texas (February 9, 2021) – Elanco, a global animal health company, offers two industry certifications - the Elanco Fundamentals of Animal Science Certification and the Elanco Veterinary Medical Applications Certification. Along with providing certification opportunities for students and current professionals in the field, Elanco has also incorporated the certifications into their internal employee training program.

As a leader in animal health and company culture, Elanco is committed to employees’ well-being, growth and development. To facilitate a purposeful, engaging and inclusive culture, Elanco focuses heavily on onboarding and training, especially within the first year of employment.

Elanco launched their certifications in 2016, and since then, more than 10,000 individuals across the nation have earned an Elanco certification. In 2020, Elanco began building a library of videos and slide presentations from the certification preparation materials. Featuring industry experts and practicing veterinarians, Elanco plans to incorporate the resource collection within their pre-established training program during the first quarter of 2021.

By combining the preparation materials developed for their industry certifications with the pre-existing training resources, Elanco employees are exposed to concepts within the animal production and veterinary fields via engaging educational resources. While some Elanco employees come from traditional agricultural backgrounds, most new employees have little to no experience in animal management and care, particularly for large animals. The new training materials will ensure all Elanco employees have a fundamental understanding of the animal health industry. 

The Elanco industry certifications are hosted on iCEV, a leading online certification testing platform. The certification preparation materials were developed by iCEV in collaboration with Elanco employees and other industry experts.
