- These classes are optional, not mandatory.
- Students must have clearance (turned in green packet, badge activated to enter vivarium)
- Mentors must understand that while the basics of animal handling are taught in these classes, additional training is needed for advanced animal handling (food-restricted animals, animals who have been given stimulants, etc.), and mentors are responsible for providing this training to their summer students. For maximum safety, students should be supervised when they are handling animals in the lab.
- A student who has not taken the class but is scratched or bitten in the course of their work should take the class before returning to animal work.
