Training Schedule and Registration

General and specialized training are required before working in Rice University laboratories. Substitution of training from other organizations or institutes is not accepted as formal training since operational guidelines, emergency procedures, and waste management protocols are unique to Rice.

Use the Safety Training Requirements page as a guideline to determine the types of training you are required to complete.

Sign-up is no longer through Catalog. Please use the links below, or see the training course directory in Bioraft for all available courses.

Training Records

ALL training records are now in Bioraft. Records are available to the owner of the record after logging in. A Principal Investigator or designee can also check training records of people associated with their lab in Bioraft. If you need help setting up your lab in Bioraft, contact EHS at X4444 or safety@rice.edu
