The primary goal of the Education Program is to ensure that all personnel involved in the care and use of animals in research, teaching and testing at the University of Manitoba are adequately trained in the principles of laboratory animal science and the ethical use of animals, and that they have the necessary practical skills required to conduct sound, humane research using animals.
The program is divided into two components: didactic and hands-on wet labs.
The didactic component is the Animal User training Course delivered on-line. It is mandatory for all personnel to update themselves in the didactic core components of the training program once every five years.
New personnel must complete the animal user training course (online) before they can begin their animal work. Established personnel who have completed the full course within the past five years may choose one of the following two options:
1) Online Animal User Training Course
