Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC)
Training - Required
Online CITI IACUC training will be provided to all scientists, research technicians, animal technicians, and other personnel involved in live vertebrate animal care, treatment, and use conforming to those requirements outlined in 9CFR2.32. The committee and each investigator will assure that personnel are qualified to perform their specific duties. The training and instruction will be made available, and the qualifications of personnel reviewed, with sufficient frequency to fulfill TAMIU’s responsibility as specified in 9CFR Subpart A and as specified in the TAMIU IACUC Policy and Procedures manual.
Currently Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) is not mandatory unless working on a federally funded project. However, that may be changing next year. RCR training is required every four years or once per level (ie. once as an undergraduate, once as a master's student etc.). All trainings may be completed over multiple sessions.
How to sign up for CITI IACUC and RCR Training
Initial IACUC training takes about 3 hours and a refresher course is required every 2 years.
