It is accepted under the new government legislation and suitable for those working in local authority and government departments, as well as organisations in the third and private sectors.

This course will focus on the legal requirements in relation to the animal health and welfare regulatory framework and the relationship between animal health, animal welfare, the official food and feed controls and public health.

This CTSI Professional Qualification demonstrates knowledge and understanding of: 

  • the roles of all regulatory bodies
