Train-the-trainer-workshop (WG2)
25th April 2017 in Leuven

There is a lack of European laboratory animal trainers’ exchange and networking. To overcome this, COST has granted Action CA15131 ‘PRIMTRAIN’. Work Group 2 of the Action aims at increasing the competence of laboratory staff involved in animal behaviour management and animal training. Both require skills and knowledge that are difficult to acquire without proper guidance. Therefore one measure must be to train the trainer to optimally instruct fellow staff and students.
This Workshop’s goal was to impart means and strategies to already experienced staff involved with laboratory animal training to effectively share their knowledge to other staff at their facilities. Workshop participants were: experienced animal trainers (postdocs, PhD students, technical staff).
