|Description:||Due to the amendment of the Animal Welfare Law and the acceptation of the 'Tierschutzversuchstierverordnung' as a result of the implementation of the European Directive 2010/63/EU authorities and research-based institutions have to face increasing demands to ensure the welfare of animals and staff expertise and training. The authorities and animal welfare officers strongly recommend individuals who carry out animal experiments to participate in a FELASA category B course. The course provides up-to-date theoretical and practical knowledge of laboratory animal science, animal welfare and specialized knowledge about working with laboratory animals.|
