All individuals, including faculty, staff, technicians, students, volunteers and visitors working with animals in activities at or under the auspices of Penn State must complete the Occupational Health Basic Training at least once every three years. This training content is continually updated as policies and procedures change and/or as new information about safeguarding the health of those involved in animal care and use activities emerges.
