Training Requirements

Training requirements vary based upon the work being done. When adding new personnel please contact the IACUC office for specific training requirements. All personnel will receive an email from the IACUC office with links to training sites and log in instructions along with a list of specific required training which are outlined in the IACUC "Required Training for Working with Animals" policy and in the "Animal Users Health and Safety Program" policy .

Individuals cannot be approved on an IACUC protocol nor will they receive facility access until all training requirements have been completed.

New Investigators that are hired to Dartmouth but have not yet arrived on campus may get protocol approval without completing all training. These individuals must complete all training which can be conducted off-site prior to having their protocol approved and then they must complete all on-site training prior to conducting animal research at Dartmouth.
