The BATB currently have 2 different training opportunities to offer their members:-
1) INTRODUCTION TO TISSUE BANKING FOUNDATION COURSE
BATB 2nd Introduction to Tissue Banking Foundation Course Education Day
The BATB held the second Introduction to Tissue Banking - Foundation Course at the Annual Scientific Meeting in Oxford Wed 9th May 2012. This education day was aimed at tissue bankers who wanted to broaden their understanding of other areas of tissue banking. It was a stand alone event and included an assessment at the end of the day and those that were successful received a qualification certificate. The level will be post A' Level / First Degree but would be suitable for any tissue bankers who have moderate experience in the field.
The concept of the Introduction to Tissue Banking Course is to vary the topics each year to ensure that knowledge is current and wide ranging. This year we had eminent speakers in the fields of heart valve banking, organ donation, decellularisation and cell therapy. This will begin to prepare tissue bankers who are considering undertaking the Specialist Certificate in Cell and Tissue Transplantation Science in the near future. It also provides an excellent CPD (Continued Professional Development) opportunity for those registered with the Voluntary Registration Council (VRC).
