Compliance: Animal Use and Care Training
Mandatory Training for
Researchers/Faculty using Animals
Federal regulations of the Animal Welfare Act
(USDA) and regulations of the Department of Health and Human Services require
training and continuing education of all scientists, research technicians,
animal care technicians and others involved with animal care and use. These laws
and regulations require the IACUC to act as an agent of the University to
determine that personnel are trained and qualified to conduct procedures on a
given animal species and maintain documentation of such training. To fulfill
this responsibility, the
TSU IACUC requires
personnel involved with animal care and use to complete training programs as
investigators, research support staff, and educators using animals for research
and teaching are required to complete training courses in animal care and use.
The training modules are located on the Training Site described below.
Individuals must achieve specified certification by the TSU IACUC before being
allowed to work with animals associated with University activities. New
employees should become certified within six (6) months of
circumstances, the IACUC may mandate viewing of applicable species-specific
subversion of the intent of the modules, providing exam answers to colleagues
and(or) "gaming" the software is unethical and qualifies as research/academic
misconduct. Re-certification is required every three years.
