CITI Requirements

The CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Initative) program provides web-based animal care and use educational courses designed to meet U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) requirements for basic training in the human care and use of animals. The UCSC IACUC requires completing certain courses depending on the protocol type, and on a case by case basis other courses may be required.
