The Postgraduate Certificate in Risk Analysis in Health and Food Safety offered by the Royal Veterinary College and EpiX Analytics is now open for registrations. Register now to ensure you get a place in the course starting in March 2014. The program, among the first recognized academic qualifications in Risk Analysis in Health and Food Safety, aims at providing the skills for cutting-edge and in-depth practice in quantitative risk analysis in health and food safety. It builds on previously successful training programs delivered by the two institutions, and offers candidates the opportunity to develop hands-on work skills and tailor their studies to their own professional and development needs. Options are offered to accommodate the working schedule of participants including part-time study and online examinations. Applicants with prior knowledge in risk analysis and/or who have attended risk analysis training delivered by EpiX/RVC can also apply for an exemption from Module 1 (and discounted fees).
