Training

Before using biohazardous agents in laboratory animals, you must complete proper training. Along with the Veterinary Service Center (VSC), we offer training for animal biosafety projects at animal biosafety level 2 (BSL-2) or above, which is called “Working Safely with Biohazardous Agents in Laboratory Animals.” The first part is a 20-minute web-based video reviewing general practices to follow when working at BSL-2. After completing the training, you will meet with Biosafety and VSC personnel to review safe practices specific to particular studies or animal facilities.

For additional information, see Veterinary Service Center Programs.
