Training


Required

UTC maintains a Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) membership which provides IACUC training courses.  All personnel named in an animal research protocol must complete the Basic course and the appropriate species specific modules.  You may access the CITI curriculum here: https://www.citiprogram.org. Please note that you will need to register as a new user and associate yourself with UTC in order to access the courses.  Click "add courses" once you have registered to see a list of the available IACUC courses.  

 **NOTE** All researchers and assistants directly working with animals who have active IACUC projects approved before the CITI training requirement went into effect have until September 1, 2014 to complete the required training. Any new personnel hired on must complete the training prior to working with animals.
