Training and Access

How do I get training?

DCM’s animal user training program is modular; all modules relevant to procedures described in approved animal use protocols must be completed. Contact us to obtain a training requisition.

I don’t see the training I need in the descriptions provided, what do I do?

DCM staff is also available to conduct one to one training for specific procedures not included in the training program. Alternatively, we can refer you to qualified individuals for assistance.

How do I apply for access to DCM facilities?

If you require access to the CCBR or MSB animal facility, you will need a fob. Fobs are obtained through your departmental business officer. Fobs must not be shared. Obtain a DCM Access Request Form either in person or by email. Once you have your fob, submit the completed requisition form to DCM to gain facility access. Office hours for this service may be obtained as indicated on the requisition, Tuesday and Thursday 1-3pm.
