Initial IACUC Training Schedule

All new animal users must attend the core training class.  UConn Health’s IACUC does not recognize viewing videotapes or CITI trainings as adequate training for initial training. All new animal users must complete initial training.  There are no exceptions to this requirement.

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION DUE TO COVID-19 – THIS WILL STOP ON 1/1/23

The IACUC is offering initial animal user training in an on-line, remote learning format.  In order to complete the initial animal user training in this on-line format, you still need to “register for a class”.  Only then will you be sent the links to complete the training.  If you have any questions, please contact the IACUC office at ooacc@uchc.eduPLEASE NOTE:  You must complete 100% of each training module (there will be 3) to get credit for training.

PLEASE NOTE:  Effective 1/1/23, initial animal user training will return to an in-person format.

Registration for training classes is mandatory. People who are not registered for a class will not be allowed to participate in the training class.  Registration forms require an e-signature for assurances – ONLY THE INDIVIDUAL REGISTERING FOR THE CLASS CAN SUBMIT HIS/HER OWN REGISTRATION FORM.

To sign up for a Training Event for working with animals at UConn Health only, please complete the online IACUC training registration form.  Please do not use nicknames on this registration form. The classes are on-line at this point, so it doesn’t matter what “date” you put into the registration form – enter the date you filled out the form.  Please understand that your registration is being send to a mailbox that has to be manually processed – patience would be helpful as there is only one individual processing training requests.  Requests will not be reviewed outside of the normal workday (9-5 during the week only) – so it might take a couple of days for the registration to be processed.  Submitting multiple forms will not increase the speed in which registrations are processed.

The DEADLINE for submitting a registration form is noon on the Friday prior to the training if classes are in-personNO EXCEPTIONS.

If you have questions, please contact the IACUC Office at ooacc@uchc.edu
