The present call for tender covers the organisation and implementation of training activities on controls of movements of dogs and cats, i.e. intra-Union trade, imports and non-commercial movements.

The contractor will organise and implement 8 three-day training sessions to be held in three or more EU Member States selected by the contractor. As the matters covered may need practical demonstration, the location should be close to holdings/structures that can accommodate this practical training.

It is envisaged that the service contract will be implemented in two phases each for a 24-month duration. The initiation of the second phase is subject to EU budget availability, persistence of the training need, positive analysis and approval of the Final Technical Report that needs to be submitted by the Contractor to the contracting authority at the end of the first phase.

During the first phase, the attendance should be approximately 30 people for each training session (8 sessions in total), with an expected global number of 240 participants for the whole training programme. The same training programme must be implemented during the second phase of the contract.

The courses will be offered to participants from EU Member States and other countries.
