ERA’s in both aquatic and terrestrial settings will be examined, and active engagement with the attendees will reinforce the points presented.
After completing the course, attendees will have a general understanding of the process of planning and preparing for the completion of an ERA, including data development needs, selection of endpoints, and the development of lines of evidence.
