Rodent Surgery Training Class

ARP online training classes are currently under construction. Please check back frequently; each training class will be made available as soon as it is completed.


Please use the information and links on this page to complete the ARP Rodent Surgery class. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, in-person training classes are not being scheduled at this time. Instead, we are using hybrid versions that include online presentations with an opportunity for in-person training if needed.

Please note: The rodent surgery online training class found here is not the same as the PSU IACUC required online Rodent Surgery Training tutorial. If you are looking for the IACUC required surgery training tutorial please go to the following:

To complete the Rodent Surgery Class:

Read through all the online material for the surgery class. The class contains multiple sections (presentations) and includes hyperlinks to videos that you are expected to watch. The last presentation contains a short quiz. Once completed, the quiz will automatically be submitted to ARP and recorded. A score of at least 80% is required to pass the quiz and be recorded as having completed the training class.

If, after completing the online class, you would like hands-on training in a specific surgical procedure please contact the ARP or an ARP veterinary technician or veterinarian. We will schedule an individual or pair training session to meet your needs.

This training is intended for PSU faculty, staff and students listed on currently approved IACUC protocols using rodents. Please contact the ARP office at 865-1495 for additional information.
