IACUC Training

Investigators are ultimately responsible for compliance with all applicable regulations concerning Animal Laboratory Welfare. However, it is the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) and the institutional veterinary that normally interprets the animal welfare regulations and establishes guidelines for investigators to follow that will satisfy these principles. Faculty must complete the online training prior to IACUC approval.

Federal guidelines under the purview of the Federal Office of Animal Laboratory Welfare mandate that all investigators and key personnel who are frequently and directly involved be properly trained prior to working with animal subjects. This requirement is in accordance with our Federal Wide Assurance filed with Office of Laboratory Welfare filed with the Office of Extramural Research, National Institutes of Health.

To be compliant with this federal mandate, training, under the purview of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) JMU moved to the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) curriculum for all Human Subjects Research in January 2010.

Please direct all researchers whether they are students, staff or faculty to complete the online training described below.

Educational Materials - The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) has developed a course on Research involving animal lab welfare that is available on-line. The course covers the core animal welfare instructional areas to include working with the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), Federal Mandates, Alternatives, Personnel Training, Occupational Health and Safety and more.

Please follow the steps listed below to select the required "Working with the IACUC, Lab Animal Research" training for animal research.

Training is valid for up to 3 years. You do not need a JMU e-id to register for training. Training is free.

The animal subjects and Occupational Health and Safety "required" training are checked below to assist you in selecting the correct courses. However, depending on the type of research you are going to conduct, you can select additional courses to benefit you in your work.

From the Main Menu, select Enter under Status. You should be registered for
Working with the IACUC, Lab Animal Research

You are required to take one (1) elective module for the Working with the IACUC, Lab Animal Research.

Note: Regardless of which course you complete first, you will notice when you begin the second course that some modules are already completed. "Getting Started," "Endpoint Criteria," "Surgery," and "Occupational Health and Safety" are in both trainings and the scores will carry over so that you only have to complete those modules one time.
