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

Method 2):  If you have not already received an email inviting you to participate in the course, IACUC Annual Refresher Training, please email 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.
