Annual Refresher Training

  • All research personnel already listed on approved Animal Protocols are required to complete annual refresher training.  The training may be completed one of two ways: 1) By inviting an IACUC representative to attend your lab meeting and go through the training with the lab team or 2) By having each person complete the training through the ICON/Canvas course.

Method 1): If you would like to schedule a time for the IACUC representative to go through the training with your lab, or if you have any questions regarding the annual training requirement, please contact the IACUC at 335-9787 or iacuc-pam@uiowa.edu.

Method 2):  If you have not already received an email inviting you to participate in the course, IACUC Annual Refresher Training, please email iacuc-pam@uiowa.edu to request access to these materials.

Once you receive the invitation email, the e-mail contains a link labeled “Get Started.”  Click the “Get Started” link and enter your Hawk ID and password.  Complete the University’s two-step login process.  You will then be taken to the course site where you can access the training slides.
