    contact your state's dept of ag, they're in charge of it all and can tell you which division within the dept to talk to (or go online, you should be able to find out everything you need on the state's site)

    take the book course and pass it then, then a vet comes to your farm and has you draw blood from a turkey to make sure you do it right,i know in MN where i got certified i had the option of several different kinds of testing i am certified to draw blood,rapid whole blood plate test and hatchery debris
