The following courses are intended to provide education about handling laboratory animals at specific biosafety levels. The videos were created by the American Biological Safety Association. There are a few Texas A&M procedures that differ from the video, and those techniques will be covered in hands-on training. Once a TrainTraq course is completed, a certificate is generated as training documentation.
