The French Society of Toxicology (SFT) and Altertox Academy (ex-CAAT Academy) have reached an agreement in regard to the Altertox Academy laboratory trainings for the period between 2018 and 2019. With this official partnership, the SFT acknowledges that trainings developed under Altertox Academy provide valuable toxicological insights for continuing professional development and a participation at the same ones can be used as additional elements to apply for a registration under European Registered Toxicologist (ERT). The Altertox Academy team is very content with, and encouraged by, this decision that comes after the SFT sent observers to a number of different Altertox Academy trainings in 2017. The SFT’s observers assessed positively the uniqueness, robustness and creativity of the working format and the scientific content of the Altertox Academy trainings. The French society of Toxicology, along with Chemical Watch and Portuguese Toxicology Association (AP Tox), became the third prominent partner of Altertox Academy. This partnership agreement between the French Society of Toxicology and Altertox Academy will be valid for 2 years.
