Courses for animal experimentation

The animal facility of the PRBB, in partnership with Charles River, organizes courses for professional training of technical personnel (Function C, before FELASA B) and researchers (Function D before FELASA C) from the PRBB who are working with animals. The courses have been accredited by the Generalitat de Catalunya.

The courses are taught in a mixed format; theory online and the practical parts and exams at the PRBB facilities. There will be three annual editions, approximately in March, June and October, with a maximum of 10 students per edition, although the final dates and number of annual editions will depend on the number of people registered. The places will be awarded by strict order of receipt of the pre-registration request in the email indicated in the course’s broucher, so it’s recommended to send the pre-registration at least one month before the scheduled date of the course edition.

The theoretical part of the courses will be in Spanish and in English, while the practical sessions will be in Spanish.

In order to ensure the recruiting of participants, the number of students per group of practices is limited to 5. Practice group will not be opened with less than 4 students per group.

We remind you that this course is only offered to residents of the PRBB.
