In order to provide the highest quality of training, including the opportunity for hands on
experience, the participant/instructor ratio is being kept very low with limitations on the number of
participants. This is an advanced workshop meant for people with some knowledge and
background related to biosafety, but who would benefit from further instruction and hands-on
experience. Criteria have therefore been established to ensure that the candidates who would
gain the most from this training will be selected.

While assessing the candidate’s current level of expertise and the benefit of further training, the
Workshop Organizing Committee will strive for representation from different regions of the world,
in keeping with the concept of an international workshop.

As all portions of the workshop will be conducted in English, including work inside containment,
for safety reasons it is important that all participants be fluent in the English language and very
comfortable working in it.

The International Centre for Infectious Diseases will be conducting other workshops in the future.
If you are not accepted at this time, please do not hesitate to apply again.

Please answer the following questions on a separate piece of paper and forward it along
with your application.

1.      How will participation in this workshop help you in your current or future work?

2.      What are specific areas of interest that you would like to see addressed as part of
        the training? Please specify if these are practical or theoretical.

3.      Please describe your work experience and familiarity with high containment
        facilities. Specify if this pertains to BSL3 and/or BSL4.

4.      Please list your education and training, as well as any pertinent background
        information (specify degrees and level of training obtained).

5.      Please describe your ability to work in English.

6.      Participants should note that this course is physically demanding. Please
        describe any medical conditions that the instructors should be aware of prior to
        your entry into containment.
