    Abstract

    We all have to provide training; if our program is big or small, a germ-free mouse colony or field studies in Africa, centralized or not. Animal research programs, as varied as they are, have to meet their training requirements in ways that are specific and appropriate to each institutions unique needs. This presentation will discuss basic training requirements that could be similarly satisfied across institutions, and many specific training needs that each program has to creatively accommodate. Some strategies that will be discussed to meet training needs include centralized training personnel versus lab based training, various methods of delivery, record keeping systems, and required versus voluntary training. I will focus on strategies employed at a medium/ large university with a very diverse program and how we have accommodated all of our different scenarios.
