The UPM - IBBC is organizing a Training Program for Laboratory Biosafety and Biosecurity Officers to commence in the second quarter of 2016. The main objective of the program is to develop a pool of local trainers who will undertake advocacy and continuing education on laboratory biosafety and biosecurity. At the end of the training, the trainers are expected to be competent in the following areas:

*Biosafety and biosecurity risk assessment *Laboratory vivarium Biosafety and Biosecurity *Biocontainment practices and procedures *Biocontainment facilities *Use of safety equipment *Incident response procedures *Infectious substance transport *Biosafety program management *Management of transgenic materials *Regulatory framework of transgenic materials

The training will entail at least ten modules, each of which with duration of two weeks, scheduled on July 18-29, 2016; September 18- October 1, 2016; and November 20- December 3, 2016.
