Refresher training is offered every year in the fourth quarter and is required for anyone working in BSL-1 or BSL-2 containment. If the initial training is taken less than or equal to 60 days before the refresher training is sent out, the refresher is waived.
The Biosafety Office provides a yearly training based on the previous year’s laboratory findings and compliance issues.
Annual Refresher training is conducted in an online format consisting of a series of review slides followed by a short quiz.
You will need to enter your UT NetID and email address. Upon successfully completing the training and exam with a score of 80% or better, you will receive a certificate of completion by email to the address you provide on the initial screen. Print a copy of the certificate for your laboratory notebook. If you do not see it immediately upon completion in your email inbox, please check your spam folder. If you experience any trouble with this training or don’t receive a certificate, please contact our office at (865) 974-5547 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
