All personnel involved with animals must receive training in the ethical care and use of animals in research as well as in the actual procedures that may be performed on animals during the course of the research. Information and links are provided below for required and additional training to help faculty and staff determine the training they should complete. There are different entities and web spaces on campus to navigate for animal research training. We have tried to include the most important links and information below but this is not an exhaustive list.
Some trainings are required for everyone and other trainings are determined by the type of research conducted, animals used, etc. Using this guidance document and training matrix from RARC along with this list of compliance, protocol, and safety related training requirements can help you determine which training/s to complete. RARC also provides a useful getting started section to ensure the most basic requirements are completed.
