SCAW’s IACUC Training Workshop educates and trains individuals who work with laboratory animals in research, testing and education. They include IACUC members and administrators, Principal Investigators, Attending Veterinarians, regulatory personnel and laboratory animal care staff. The regional workshop format lets small groups discuss specific topics that are relevant to IACUC functions. Each workshop is structured in similar design, with slight changes made to meet local needs.

It is expected that the workshops will be approved for hours of continuing education credit in jurisdictions which recognize AAVSB RACE approval; however participants should be aware that some boards have limitations on the number of hours accepted in certain categories and/or restrictions on certain methods of delivery of continued education. Call the SCAW office at 301-345-3500 for further information.

This workshop will help meet the requirement stated in the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals 8th edition, 2011 that states “All personnel involved with the care and use of animals must be adequately educated, trained, and/or qualified in basic principles of laboratory animal science to help ensure high-quality science and animal well-being”. It will also address USDA/APHIS/AC Policy 15.

SCAW encourages local institutions and others to co-sponsor SCAW’s IACUC Training Workshops. Please contact the SCAW office if you are interested in sponsoring a workshop.
SCAW wishes to acknowledge the sponsor of the workshops, OLAW/NIH/DHHS, USDA/APHIS/AC,CITI, Merck and GSK.

If you have any questions, call the SCAW office at 301-345-3500.

Special Needs:
Individuals requiring special accommodations should contact the SCAW office prior to the meeting. SCAW is in compliance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990
