How to use fish as laboratory animals in an optimal way in your research


PhD students, researchers, professionals, and post-graduate students often need knowledge, insights, and skills in how to care for and perform procedures on fish in an optimal way, allowing them to perform their research while ensuring animal welfare. Having a valid certificate is mandatory for working with laboratory animals.

This micro-credential provides an opportunity to obtain all legally required competences and skills (related to EU Functions A, C and D) on fish as laboratory animals. This course can only be followed if a student has first followed a course that offers the EU core modules.

The course has been accredited by FELASA (Federation of European Laboratory Animal Science Associations) and obtaining a credit for this course will result in an internationally accepted FELASA certificate, provided that a credit has also been obtained for the Laboratory Animal Science Core course.
