Although there are now many commercially available educational and training aids of high quality (see the NORINA database), the need may arise for a product which is not available.

A increasing number of talented educators and trainers have produced their own models and simulators, in particular for use in the training of veterinary students and laboratory animal personnel. This page, which will expand as more educators are identified, aims to present this work.

International Workshop on Homemade Educational and Training Materials
Norecopa will be arranging an international workshop on this subject in Oslo on Wednesday 11 April 2018. The registration fee is just NOK 500, thanks to financial support for this meeting from Scand-LAS and sponsorship of materials by Jan F. Andersen A/S. The workshop is open for everyone, including those who are already producing or using homemade materials, and those who wish to learn how to do so and gain inspiration to construct models in their own field.
The workshop will be held on the campus of the Veterinary School (Ullevålsveien 68-72). This means that you are requested not to have had direct contact with farm animals or buildings for 72 hours before the workshop starts.
Please contact Adrian Smith for registration and more practical information.
