The first module of this training course covers the legal and ethical approach to using rodents in research. Animal handling, recognizing animal health and well-being, Schedule 1, and health and safety are covered in the second module. Anaesthesia and analgesia, rodent diseases and biology, the application of scientific procedures and rodent husbandry complete the third module, and delegates may complete the assessment at this stage. For those who require a firmer grounding in anaesthetic techniques or who are planning to undertake invasive surgery, the fourth module provides the background and practical experience in these disciplines.
Our experienced lecturers provide the knowledge and understanding required for participants to complete a multiple-choice questionnaire at the end of the course, which will gain them a certificate from the Scottish Accreditation Board. They can then apply for a Personal Licence.
