Learning Management System (LMS)

Biological Resources uses an online LMS to provide some inductions and online theory training to our staff and researchers. Your local Facility Manager or trainer will provide a list of online courses to complete relevant to your project. Many new researchers have no experience working with research animals and the training provided recognises the need for knowledge and skills in many areas.

The below training hierarchy provides an example of appropriate theory and skills training provided by Biological Resources. This example is for common training requests in blood collection or injection training in rodents.
