Since its foundation the Spallanzani Institute has planned and provided advanced courses in the area of veterinary, agrizootechnical studies and applied biology. This training service was certified in 2010 according to UNI EN ISO norms 9001:2008 (Registration Number 1015593). The institute is also in the regional register of subjects qualified for offering Services of Instruction and Professional Training, in accordance with the D.G.R. n. 2412/2011, with registration number 881 (01/07/2015.).
The training targets technicians within the field, breeders, veterinaries, teachers, lab technicians, students, etc. (Italians and Foreigners). It is designed and organised in such a way that it:
offers specialized course packages;
responds to specific needs of the market;
plans and inspects laboratories in situ where the client works and submits his employees to a customized training.
