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.

For more information about the CLT Program, please contact the DLAM Training team or ARC administrative staff.
