PIL A Rabbit program details, quizzes, and final assessment exam
The online modules for PIL A can be completed at the student's own pace (however a 10 workday time period is pre-set). Expected to take around 12 hours to complete. You will be tested as you progress through courses and module blocks to ensure a firm understanding of the material.
Ongoing assessment: There are tests of knowledge as you progress through courses and module blocks. These are open-book questions.
FINAL ASSESSMENT EXAM: Upon successful completion of all eLearning modules the student arranges with their establishment NTCO the scheduling of an invigilated 'Final Assessment Exam'. This is taken in exam conditions and is a closed book exam. The pass mark is 70%.
SKILLS TRAINING & ASSESSMENT: Charles River 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). The completion of 'hands-on skills' components of relevant Modules Learning Outcomes must be arranged with your establishment/employer (i.e. to complete PIL A we require verification of animal handling training). Your Named Training & Competency Officer (NTCO) is required to provide a signed verification form (working with Charles River under our guidance & accreditation) of your training in skills such as animal handling (for further information see our Terms & Conditions & Pre-course information provided upon registration).
The completed skills verification form must be returned within 3 months of course completion. The accrediting body will not issue a course certificate(s) after a period of 3 months post-course completion. Extension to this can be applied for on a case-by-case basis via CRL.
COVID-19 & social distancing: On a case by case basis further extension can be applied for (via CRL) to the accrediting body.
It is commonly felt that successful eLearning requires both monitoring and mentoring from an experienced supervisor/mentor. To aid the mentor in observing a students' progress, NTCOs/supervisors are given the opportunity to remotely monitor time spent in the modules, as well as results and achievements.
