2020 Annual Biosafety Refresher Training - accessible for completion through 3/31/2021.
This annual biosafety refresher training is intended for those who work with biomaterials at BSL-1 or BSL-2 containment levels.
2020 annual biosafety training will be assigned to those who completed either Biosafety 101: Standard Microbiological Practices or the 2019 Annual Biosafety Refresher Training. If you did not get assigned, it will also be available for self-assignment in the VUMC Learning Exchange. If you need this training on the VU side, email the SkyVU team to request the assignment in VU Oracle Learn.
NOTE: This is all new training and does not duplicate material already covered in other courses.
- The Biosafety 101: Standard Microbiological Practices online training course is a prerequisite for this annual training. If you have not completed either this course or the 2019 Refresher, you will need to complete Biosafety 101 now. This course is available for self-assignment in the VU Oracle Learn and in VUMC Learning Exchange.
- This training is not a substitute for Principles & Practices of Biosafety training.
If you have specific questions regarding this training and who needs to take it, please email the Biosafety Team at: email@example.com.

How should you maintain copies of training documentation?
- All lab personnel: Please give your PI or lab manager a copy of your completion certificate or transcript from the VUMC or VU learning management system. OCRS Biosafety will not be able to efficiently generate these records for you because these learning management systems are not under the purview of OCRS.
- Principal Investigators & Lab Mangers: Please log training completion of your personnel in a manner that works best for you. The OCRS Biosafety Team will spot check training records during future lab inspections to verify training compliance for IBC reports.
