IACUC-Related Training For Virginia Tech Researchers, Students, Employees and Visiting Researchers
Virginia Tech is committed to a high standard of animal care and use, as well as a high standard of occupational health and safety for its faculty, staff, and students. Quality training and educational activities are essential to help us to meet and exceed these standards.
Virginia Tech requires that animal users and handlers complete all 4 training elements before the processing of a protocol will begin.
