Core Stream

core modules

The training modules of the core stream, which reflect the core topics of the CCAC Recommended Syllabus for an Institutional Animal User Training Program, are relevant to the training of all animal users (including investigators, post-doctoral fellows, research staff and graduate students).

These training modules are intended as resources that:

  • institutions and animal care committees (ACCs) may use to ensure their animal users meet the theoretical training requirements of their institutional animal user training program
  • teachers may use to introduce the topic of the ethical use and care of animals in their courses
Ethics in animal experimentation
Guidelines, legislation, and regulations
Occupational health and safety
