All personnel conducting research with vertebrate animals must be appropriately qualified and trained before working with the species; the training includes IACUC basic training and hands-on training. The basic animal care and use training provided by the IACUC is required for anyone working with vertebrate animals in research and teaching. Hands-on training must be obtained through the individual investigator’s laboratory or through the animal facilities by appointment.
In order to begin working with vertebrate animals at the University of Colorado Boulder, you can concurrently enroll in the Occupational Health Program and take the IACUC Basic Training. No need to sign up for training, just come to a session listed below, and be sure to sign-in when you arrive. Otherwise, we won’t know that you participated.
