Candidates wishing to be trained as toxicologists are advised to first find a trainer recognised by the NVT. The NVT Trainer bears final responsibility for the training and draws up a proposal for a personal training plan and a training committee in consultation with the candidate. The training plan consists of a theoretical component (see below) and a practical component, which consists of acquiring expertise in toxicological research or in applied toxicology. Both components should be aligned with the CT's requirements for Toxicology training. The NVT Educator submits the training plan to the Registration Committee for Toxicology (RT) for approval. After approval, the RT registers the candidate as a "Toxicologist in Training".

 For the theoretical component of the training, the Postgraduate Education in Toxicology (PET) modular programme offers a complete course package, consisting of compulsory and optional components. As the various PET courses are offered at intervals of one or more years, careful planning of the personal training programme is necessary.

 The requirements to become a registered toxicologist can be found in the information on registration and re-registration.
