Some courses organized in Europe and Switerland are accreditated by FELASA (Federation of Europeans Laboratory Animal Science associations).
By the past, classification system for the different courses were based on "category" (category A: taking care of animals; category B: carrying out procedures on animals; category C: designing procedures and projects; category D: specialist in laboratory animal science).
Following EU Directive and document on common education and training framework edited by Brussels, Felasa is now accrediting courses using the "functions" system (EU Function A: carrying out procedures on animals; EU Function B: designing procedures and projects; EU Function C: taking care of animals; EU Function D: killing animals)
In France ex-education "niveau 1" corresponds to EU function B (module 2 in CH); ex-education course "niveau 2" corresponds to EU fonction A (module 1 in CH)
Swiss legislation requires organization of 2 courses - module 1 and module 2 - ; contents of those 2 courses groups all 4 european functions
Module 1 - sp. rats/mice - organized by resal is a course accreditated "Felasa EU functions ACD".
Module 1 - sp. rats/mice - organized by LTK is a course accreditated "Felasa EU functions ACD".
An ask to accreditate Module 2 as a "Felasa EU fonction B" course is pending.
