Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a prerequisite for many professional medical and scientific disciplines but less common for those involved in laboratory animal work. Directive 2010/63/EU requires that persons 'are adequately educated, competent and continuously trained'.
FELASA has developed guidance on how such a CPD scheme could be introduced.
