NACWO Introductory training course

Live online virtual classroom, IAT accredited NACWO Introductory training course, for candidates seeking to become NACWO's. 

Each day will consist of live online presentation sessions, to include interactive discussion and virtual break out room exercises (within the limits of a live virtual class environment).

Day 1; consists of an in-depth study of ASPA, with particular emphasis on those areas that come under the remit of the NACWO.

Day 2; concentrates on the practical role of the NACWO, looking at the interactivity between themselves and the other named persons, the Animal Welfare and Ethical Review Body and the Establishment Licence Holder. Animal Welfare assessment, record keeping and the project licence complete the overview.

Theory Assessment: Post-course, attendees will take a closed book assessment, comprising of multiple True & False, and extended matching type questions. The assessment is taken under exam conditions, with a local or remote invigilator. The date & time of the final assessment and invigilation session will be arranged with your establishment NTCO. Successful participants are awarded an IAT Certificate.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a NACWO introductory course. Registrants must discuss with their establishment NTCO the experience, skills, education & training (i.e. modules under the UK Home Office Education & Training Guidance Document) they must complete to enable them to be appointed as a NACWO. Example of additional training requirements are likely to include: If the registrant is not a current personal licence holder or has not attended a recent (within last 3 years) personal licensee course (with relevant species specific modules of PIL A) they are highly likely to be required to attend at least the PIL A species specific modules of a personal licensee training course.
