Learn the responsibilities and ethics of working with animals during your research endeavours.
The use of animals in research is a matter of general public concern and forms part of wider ethical concerns relating to how we should treat animals. All people involved in the care and use of animals at RMIT University must understand their responsibilities and the requirements. They must also be competent in the procedures they are to perform before they commence work, or must work under the direct supervision of a competent person.
If you intend to use animals for scientific purposes, this course provides the basic foundation to start your learning.
