Anyone wishing to apply for a project licence or personal licence under the Animal (Scientific Procedures) Act 1986 must first successfully complete an accredited training course.

The training for licence applicants is covered by 5 separate modules. All personal licence applicants must pass modules 1-3. Modules 2 and 3 are species specific and applicants will need to complete a separate assessment for each species they wish to work with. If the personal licence applicant wishes to perform surgical procedures they must also successfully complete the module 4 training.

Project licence applicants must successfully complete the training for modules 1,2 and 5. Module 5 is specifically designed to cover all areas of writing, applying for and holding a project licence.

The University of Nottingham provides accredited training for Modules 1-4 in a variety of species including aquatics.
