Equivalence for module 1 and/or module 2
If someone followed abroad a potentially equivalent course on animal experimentation, it's possible to ask for an equivalence. Decision is only taken by veterinarian cantonal authorities, after examination of documents, on a case-by-case basis. Authorities decide for a full or a partial equivalence; if full equivalence is accepted, participant may register to a short one day course entitled "Ethics, legislation and 3R"; if partial equivalence is accepted, authorities will indicate to candidate which part of module 1 or module 2 course he/she should register for.
If you are concerned, you must contact your director of animal experimentation.
