Several steps are required to begin animal work at FSU.  The following checklist is provided to ensure you have completed all necessary requirements.

Training Enrollment Form
Complete this form to request enrollment in the AALAS Learning Library and to receive information regarding other protocol specific training requirements. Completion of this form does not constitute approval to begin working with animals or to access animal facilities.

Medical Monitoring Enrollment (PDF) - (DOC)
Please submit the completed form to campus Environmental Health & Safety via fax (850-644-8842), in a sealed envelope through Campus Mail (mail code 4481), or deliver it to 1200 Carothers Hall. Your enrollment in the Occupational Health Program will not be complete until Environmental Health & Safety receives your form. Laboratory Animal Resources personnel cannot accept completed forms because these forms contain confidential medical information.
