PIL course exams are used to assess whether applicants have a satisfactory understanding of the course content. These take the form of multiple choice questions and are normally held within the same week as the course. A practical assessment is required to complete the course for Category A, AB, ABC or any of the species specific courses. You should arrange a mutually convenient time with the animal facility you will be working in to carry this out.

The PPL course is assessed by a series of short answer questions covering ethics, experimental design and Project Licence management. This assessment is completed at home / work and should be returned to UBS within 2 weeks.

The Training Centre obtains a certificate of successful completion of the course from the Universities Accreditation Group for those who have satisfactorily completed the training and passed the multiple choice / short answer question assessment. This certificate must be submitted when applying for a Personal or Project Licence.
