Training in a variety of research-related areas is required under federal law for investigators, students and trainees working in a laboratory setting.  The links below will take you to the appropriate Temple  University web sites where you can enroll in courses for initial training and gain access to on-line annual refresher training modules.  The Environmental Health and Radiation Safety (EHRS) Training Matrix link will open a PDF that lists: all training courses offered by EHRS, who must attend, the frequency of required refresher training, the method of presentation, and information needed to register for a given course.


Also listed below are links to required training modules for researchers working with animals and each of the EHRS refresher courses.  Finally, training in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR), which is mandatory for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, and faculty funded by NIH training grants and career awards is available.  RCR Training is a framework for imparting "best practices" for the highest ethical and professional standards, and is increasingly regarded as a critical component of scholarly and career development.
