This five day residential course jointly arranged by CEnTSA and Food and Farming Compliance Ltd. is intended for those officers appointed to Local Authority and Central Government departments and Agencies and to the FSA Official Control Personnel who are charged with administering and enforcing the provisions of animal health and welfare legislation. It will also be of importance for the staff of Animal Charities and Quality Assurance Schemes.
The course will serve as an initial and refresher training; however, it is advisable for delegates to have about 6 months experience of working in this capacity. With the change in the CTSI qualification structure, this course will add benefit to those officers who are engaged with the enforcement role and who no longer have opportunity to achieve the animal health and welfare CTSI qualification.
