Learn ecotoxicology in 15 information-packed modules

Following on from the success of our first eLearning course 'The Beginner’s Guide to Toxicology' which has helped over 900 professionals gain confidence in understanding the adverse effects of chemicals on humans, Chemical Watch's 'The Practical Guide to Ecotoxicology and the Environment' eLearning course aims to improve your understanding of how chemicals interact with the environment and what to do to prevent harm..

Why you need to understand Ecotoxicology 

Ecotoxicology is a multi-disciplinary science that studies the adverse effects of chemicals on all living organisms at the population, community and ecosystem levels. Ecotoxicological assessments are a standard information requirement for global chemical registration and notification procedures as well as for classification and labelling.

How this course can help

This course provides you with the knowledge to recognise the ways in which chemicals may interact with the environment and the precautionary measures which are needed to prevent harm.

This informative eLearning course clearly explains:

  • The key points and concepts of ecotoxicology and the environment
  • Aquatic, terrestrial, vertebrate and invertebrate toxicity, and the significance of indirect exposure to humans via the environment
  • Environmental risk assessment
  • Environmental exposure assessment
  • Different testing strategies

This is achieved via a series of 15 modules filled with up-to-date regulatory data, using 340 professionally-designed pages of content combined with 420 audio explanations and 126 videos, module-specific quiz questions, an extensive glossary of terms and 15 module handouts.
