Animal Research Ethics Training
Animal User Training Requirements
The Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC) guidelines mandate that “All personnel involved in the use of animals in research, teaching and testing must be adequately trained in the principles of laboratory animal science and the ethical issues involved in animal use.” This includes principal investigators, research staff, trainees, animal care staff, etc.
The University of Alberta training requirements for animal users are delivered in two parts:
Part 1: Ethics of Animal Use
- an online course managed by the Research Ethics Office, required to access REMO and as a pre-requisite for Part 2 Training.
