About our CPD courses
Our CPD courses are a great way for you to gain the skills required to excel in the field of animal research, without committing to a full IAT HE Diploma. Designed for a range of professionals working in animal research facilities, our courses are suitable for animal technologists, researchers, veterinary professionals and other animal facility staff members. We strive to train laboratory professionals to the highest standards and work closely with many large employers of laboratory staff including the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge and King's College London.
Once completed you will be awarded an IAT CPD Certificate specific to the unit you have studied. These certificates can be used at any time to contribute towards a full IAT HE Diploma, without having to repeat the unit.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY...
"What I most liked about studying with CLAST was the teaching staff, they were superb and took time out to explain anything that was not understood. I still keep in touch with some of them and think of them as friends."
