Inspector Training Course


From the 1 October 2018, the new Licensing of Activities Involving Animals Regulations (AAL) require those carrying out inspections to be appropriately qualified.

The Professional Programme in Inspecting Licensable Activities Involving Animals’, certificate has been specifically developed by animal health inspectors and education experts to address this new legal requirement. The course will provide inspectors with sufficient training to ensure the legislation, its guidance and animal welfare requirements are understood and implemented.

The course comprises an online multiple choice test, prior to undertaking five days of ‘face to face’ training. These classroom days will be a combination of taught sessions and practical exercises delivered by qualified, experienced inspectors from the City of London, supported by industry experts, held at the specialised facilities at Heathrow Animal Reception Centre. Assessment is through essays and journals, as well as inspection reports.

Course cost: £990
Lunch and refreshments will be provided at the Heathrow Animal Reception Centre. Discounted hotel accommodation is available.
