Training and Tutorials

The IBC and BSO at CSU are committed to ensuring that all individuals working with biohazardous materials receive thorough and appropriate training. IBC approval requires that PIs and researchers remain up to date on all relevant trainings. The information below should serve as a guide for all researchers regarding training requirements, and a resource for IBC submission tutorials.

IBC Training for Researchers

The IBC at CSU Training is an overview of the NIH Guidelines, including types of research covered, IBC purview, roles and responsibilities, and the CSU IBC approval process.

Note: If you are required to take The IBC at CSU training for your IBC approval, you must access the training through the IBC Online Database for your completion of the course to be recorded. 

Biosafety Training

The CSU Biosafety Office, under the Vice President for Research, offers a variety of online and face-to-face biosafety training courses.

Annual biosafety training is required for all persons working in the BSL3 laboratories (persons working with procedures/agents requiring BSL3 laboratories AND those working with Select Agents in the BSL3 labs).

Register for an online or face-to-face class through Environmental Health Services – Training Classes.
