      TIME: 1:30pm PT, 4:30pm ET

      The animal research field has gotten more sophisticated with the use of genetically engineered animals, biohazardous agents, and advanced technologies; moreover, those who work with the animals in the laboratory setting have one of the most consequential assignments in the research arena. Trained and competent personnel are a cornerstone of any animal care and use program.  Individual career success is a combination of education, experience, continuing competence, professional development and personal commitment.  Integration of training and certification into programs demonstrates institutional commitment to quality research. It also enhances the program by providing staff with knowledge and training to address problems and situations that arise and to perform their job in a professional and effective manner.  Professional development programs offered through the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science, including the AALAS Learning Library and  the AALAS certification process, will be presented.

      Learning Objectives:

      • Enhance understanding of professional development as a fundamental tenet of an animal care and use program.
      • Increase awareness of educational resources for the laboratory animal science community.
