Advances in biotechnology and biomedical research have led to the establishment of highly sophisticated laboratories with different biorisk levels in several fields such as microbiology, immunology, genetics, and nanotechnology among others. These biological risks can be controlled and contained by the correct implementation of internationally recognized procedures such as proper handling of laboratory equipment, adequate facilities, recognition and containment of laboratory emergencies, and the proper training and education of laboratory personnel.
Biosecurity, on the other hand, ensures the protection, control and accountability for valuable biological materials within laboratories to prevent their unauthorized access, loss, misuse or intentional release. Implementing the appropriate safety procedures and secure measures will ensure the protection of the laboratory staff, and through them, the environment and public health.
Each training course is delivered in (12-30) Learning Hours. These courses can be taken as part of the three-month programs (Post Graduate Diploma Certificate), or as stand-alone courses. The participant will be awarded a Certificate of Successful Completion upon meeting the course requirements by the International Academy of Public Health (IAPH) and accredited by the Agency for Public Health Education Accreditation (APHEA).
