The Postgraduate Education in Toxicology (PET) offers a modular training programme, which builds upon MSc-level skills and competences in toxicology. The PET programme provides the theoretical basis required for recognition and registration as a professional expert in toxicology. Details on the procedures and requirements for recognition and registration can be found on the websites of the Netherlands Society of Toxicology (NVT) and the European Society of Toxicology (EUROTOX).
