This course is organised by the Central Animal Laboratory few times per year.
The objective of the course on laboratory animal science is to present basic facts and principles that are essential for the humane use and care of laboratory animals and for the quality of research. The course focuses on the responsible and appropriate use of animals in scientific experiments in which alternatives (refinement, reduction, replacement) play an essential role. The course has the aim to gain knowledge and insight into the design of an animal experiment in a scientific and ethically justified manner, taken into account the 3Rs principles.
The program of the course on laboratory animal science comprises the requirements of the Dutch 'Wet op de dierproeven' (Experiments on Animals Act). The Laboratory Animal Science course includes an introductory course as well as a species-specific course on mice and rats. The certificate of completion of the course together with an academic master degree in biomedical sciences will lead to a legal recognition to design animal experiments in the Netherlands. The Laboratory Animal Science course referred to in annex 6 belonging to Article 5 of the Ministerial Order on Animal Experiments 2014 (Dierproevenregeling 2014), and meets the requirements referred to in article 23.2(b) and annex V belonging to Article 23.3 of directive 2010/63/EU on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes (22 September 2010) of the European Parliament and of the Council.
