Florida State Statute 828.058, and Florida Administrative Code 61G18-16.005, mandate that an employee or agent of a public or private agency, animal shelter or other facility that is operated for the collection and care of stray, neglected, abandoned or unwanted animals must successfully complete a 16 hour euthanasia technician certification course prior to performing animal euthanasia. At this time, FACA’s Euthanasia Certification course is the only course that has been approved by the Florida Board of Veterinary Medicine.

This course is not open to the general public. FACA instructors will only certify students who are employed by agencies who meet the statutory definition provided above. All other potential students must first obtain permission from the FACA Board of Directors.
