IMPORTANT INFORMATION (PRIOR TO REGISTERING YOU MUST DISCUSS THE FOLLOWING SKILLS TRAINING & ASSESSMENT REQUIREMENT WITH YOUR ESTABLISHMENT NTCO): The Live online virtual part of our UK accredited courses & modules meet the 'theory' learning outcomes appropriate to the Education & Training framework for Function A staff (UK PIL's A, B or C). There is also a mandatory requirement to complete hands-on skills training and assessment components of relevant Module(s) Learning Outcomes. This must be arranged with your establishment/employer NTCO, i.e. to complete PIL A we require verification of completion of (Module 3.2.1 & 8) species-specific animal handling skills training & assessment of competency. Your Named Training & Competency Officer (NTCO) is required to provide Charles River with signed verification documentation and the Directly Observed Procedure Skills forms (your local DOPS sign-off-record). This must be to a standard (DOPS) working with Charles River under our guidance & accreditation. This evidences your training & assessment of competency in the required skills of Modules 3.2.1 & 8.0 (for further information see our Terms & Conditions & Pre-course information provided upon registration).

The completed skills verification form (plus DOPs forms) must be returned within 3 months post (theory) course attendance. The accrediting body will not issue course certificate(s) after a period of 3 months post theory course attendance. Extension to this can be applied for on a case-by-case basis via CRL. 

COVID-19 & social distancing: The 3 months to skills completion policy may be extendable.

On a case by case basis further extension can be applied for (via CRL) to the accrediting body. 

Re-attendance of the full course (charged to the registrant) will be required if the accreditation body policy on skills completion is not adhered to.
