The Chancellor’s Animal Research Committee (ARC) and Division of Laboratory Animal Medicine (DLAM) are pleased to announce the launch of the Certified Laboratory Trainer (CLT) Program.
The CLT Program is a voluntary, self-referral program by which well-qualified individuals working with mice and rats may be certified by DLAM to train other individuals to handle these species. Personnel trained by a CLT are not required to attend the DLAM wetlab for mice or rats in order to complete species-specific training. Potential CLTs will be evaluated by DLAM staff for proficiency on multiple techniques, including handling/restraint and euthanasia. Individuals who receive the CLT designation will work with DLAM to document training of personnel and maintain current knowledge of training techniques.
