Managing Resources in the Modern Animal Facility
November 16, 2016 - November 18, 2016
The course is designed to provide a mix of technical and non-technical skills useful to effectively cope with increasingly complex and sometimes new issues such as ensuring quality care of the animals, compliance with regulations and guidelines, funding and administration, hiring staff and human resources management. Part of the training will be delivered by a human resources training group that will broaden the understanding and experiences of facility managers outside the specific field of laboratory animal science. The course aims at those wishing to move into management positions or to improve their managerial performance.
The course will give particular emphasis to interactive case discussions and practical sessions including two workshops.
Facility management and planning; Monitoring of facility operation; Supply procurement; Tender preparation; Budgeting; Personnel hiring and training; Competence identification and assessment; Engagement and motivation; Communication strategies; Relationship and conflict resolution.
Facility directors, facility managers and supervisors, assistant/associate managers and senior technicians.
