All those that want the certificate will go to upstate NY to the farm to do the actual hands on training which may require a few visits until you are proficient enough to be certified Shochet
I notice the sample written shiurim are in Hebrew and English. Is one of them better/more the ikar? (Our Hebrew is good, so either is fine).
The course was written in HEBREW AND translated into English, so they are same
If we want to do some more involved learning that just reading the shiurim is there something that my chavrusa and I could learn to compliment the course?
There is a prelifera of Seforim portraying the actual Schechita in pictures.It's not necessary to learn more than the areas that are brought down in the shiurim. There is a lot from the Gemara’s unlike many areas of Halacha, so the best is to learn the shiurim well inside and the areas that they point out in the shulchan aruch and Gemaras that are pointed out. A.B.C. is always the Mechaber, Rema, Taz and Shach
