Hands-on courses & seminars (CPD)
The aim of these educations is to follow the legal requirements for maintenance and demonstration of competence, and to facilitate the implementations of the 3R’s in routine animal work.
It is also a part of Comparative Medicine’s career ladder, outlining opportunities for competence development and for animal technicians at KI to advance to other positions.
According to the Directive 2010/63/EU and the Swedish legislation SJVFS 2019:9 (L150), all persons working with research animals are required to maintain their LAS competence via CPD activities.
All CPD seminars are free of charge. To those attending, a CPD certificate will be provided.
