Training and Workshops
View prerequisites, available workshops, and registration instructions here.
All personnel working with research animals must enroll in training prior to beginning work with animals.
For routine animal procedures, the VSC offers hands on training. Attendees will not be able to enroll in workshops or orientations until all prerequisites have been completed. See below for additional information on registration instructions and a searchable schedule of workshops.
Due to COVID-19, we are reducing the amount of attendees per session and making modifications to instruction in order to maintain social distancing. Enrollment is not currently accepted through STARS, instead please email a registration form to email@example.com.
