Welcome to education in animal welfare concerning slaughter and other killing!
  As of 2013, a EU Regulation requires that any person handling animals at slaughter and during other types of killing must
have taken a course and received a certificate of competence. To ease the transition, the Swedish University of Agricultural
Sciences (SLU), with funding from the Swedish Board of Agriculture, developed this training material. The material is freely
available for anyone to use in order to gain the knowledge required and to provide a common foundation in this area.
The web-based material is posted on this website and is available to anyone who wants to learn more about animal welfare at
slaughter and other types of killing.

The English DISA-material is not yet complete. It is constantly being updated.
