Biosafety for Study Team Members



Full course description


Due to current conditions with the COVID-19 outbreak, we are not offering in-person events or sessions. We are monitoring the situation closely and will send out communications once the practical sessions become available. In the meantime, students can still enroll in the course and complete the online portion of the training.

This course provides new UBC Biosafety Permit Study Team Members with an overview of UBC policies and procedures for working with biological materials, including project risk assessment, exposure control and emergency procedures.   A thorough understanding of the course material aids in the prevention of laboratory accidents and laboratory associated infections.



This course consists of 2 parts:

• Part 1: 9 x 15 minute online modules, each followed by a quiz

• Part 2: A 3-hour in-person session with a written exam.
