This rather clumsy title refers to the essential knowledge and understanding required by anyone working professionally within the animal care sector. The Animal Welfare Bill (2006), with its emphasis on the 'duty of care' will create an expectation by Local Authorities that anyone working professionally with pets will be aware of and understand these important legal requirements and the increasing demands of Health & Safety legislation. Possession of this certificate will ensure compliance with the requirements of the Animal Welfare Bill and associated regulations.
