Charles River Campus

The Charles River Campus initiative delivers high-quality training and education programs for scientists, veterinarians, animal technologists, and support staff working in the field of laboratory animal science.

Our online training platform is organized to suit three types of requirements: institutional plans for continuing education, accreditation courses to meet regulatory requirements, and individualized training done “à la carte.” Please note that certain courses (especially accreditation courses) will require an additional practical or “hands-on” classroom training component, which we can provide. Please visit the Charles River Campus website for more information or to begin taking your accreditation courses.

À La Carte
Professional training wherever and whenever you want it: search our online Learning Catalog, explore courses and options, and design your own training program customized to meet your educational needs or career goals.

Institutional Plans
We can help design, implement, and manage your institutional continuing education program, which can consist of both mandatory modules and optional continuing education training courses. Institutions will have the opportunity to name Administrators who can enroll students, assign courses, and track results – all from the convenience of their web browser.

Accreditation Courses
These programs include training materials designed to obtain accreditation through different local authorities with modular programs for functions A, B, C, and D, in compliance with EU directive 2010/63/EU.

Accreditation for UK Home Office Licensee Training
In conjunction with certified classroom training, Charles River Campus eLearning has been accredited for the provision of mandatory UK Home Office modular training by the Scottish Accreditation Board.

On-Site Training
In addition to the eLearning provided on our Charles River Campus, we provide regulatory and customized education programmes at convenient locations throughout Europe and North America, and can deliver them directly at your facility. Please see our events and training calendar for more information.
