LAS campus

Online training

At las campus, you can pursue online courses and modules to acquire or brush up theoretical qualifications for working with laboratory animals. 

Our courses are designed for teaching/acquiring the knowledge required for animal experiment work according to EU recommendations and, in Germany, according to the ordinance on protection of laboratory animals (TierSchVersV). A course thus consists of several parts: a general part (Course 01 - general part) and relevant species-specific content (Courses 01.1 and following courses). The composition of the course may be adapted to country-specific requirements. The main focus at present is on the training required in Germany for people who conduct or plan and design animal experiments (TierSchVersV Annex 1 Section 3). 

Against this background, “courses” are only open to participants whose institute/facility/course organizer have concluded a framework agreement with LAS interactive and then guarantees/provides practical training for participants.

Module Basics

C 01: German animal welfare legislation

Price: 80,00 €

Module Basics

Module Basics

C 01, F 09 – F 11: Basic principles for planning procedures

Content concerning German animal welfare legislation, ethics (level 1 and 2) and 3Rs and introduction to the design of procedures and projects.

DE | EN | FR

This module complex summarizes relevant content on law (core module C 01) and ethics in animal experiments with introductory aspects of planning and design of animal experiment procedures (C02 and components from function-specific modules F 09 – F 11) for a unit that is capable of being tested.

The content offers only an introduction to the subjects of planning and designing procedures from modules F 09 - F 11 and are therefore not sufficient as sole qualification for planning experiments.

It brings together content that stands apart from the actual work with the animal setting out the framework conditions for animal experiment work and laying the foundations for persons who plan and conduct animal experiments. It covers topics such as the German Animal Welfare Act and the associated rules of procedure, as well other areas of law, ethics of animal experiments in more depth, subject areas of the 3Rs, database search and planning of the research project, including calculation of the number of animals needed. The learning unit alone is not sufficient for qualification "EU - Function B" - designing procedures and projects.

Module Basics

C 03 - C 06: general

General content on the biology, husbandry, stress and humane killing of (laboratory) animals.

DE | EN | FR

The study material for "C 03 - C 06: general" is the basis for the species-specific modules "C 03 - C 06: [species]". After successful completion of the first course of training on the general content and one species or species group, you may go on to broaden your knowledge by covering further species. In this case it is not necessary to repeat the general content, but only the species-specific content on the new species.

The learning unit brings together the basic content of EU core modules C 03 - C 06 into a single unit that can be tested. It teaches the basics for working with laboratory animals and covers topics such as housing systems, hygiene measures, breeding management, nutrition, assessments of stress on animals and the requirements of humane killing.

Cost: 140,00 €

The learning unit alone is not sufficient for qualification according to Annex 1 No. 3 TierSchVersV (EU Function A: people who conduct animal experiments).
