Biosafety Level 2 Training for Select Agent Registered BSL2 Laboratories
This course will provide trainees with the principles of biosafety, best lab practices, a basic knowledge and understanding of laboratory equipment, and incident response procedures to successfully conduct research in a UTMB Select Agent Registered BSL2
Animal Biosafety Level 2 Training
This course will offer students a basic understanding of biosafety principles, practices and techniques that are necessary to successfully conduct research in an ABSL2 laboratory.
UPDATE for ABSL2 Users/Trainees
- The ABSL2 theoretical module (presentation & exam) of the course is still required to ensure a consistent message regarding emergency response and biosafety related information
- The practical portion of the ABSL2 course has been revised to increase efficiency.
- Trainees will now have the option of completing their practical training with ARC, Biosafety, or the PI.
- Within the ABSL2 Training Registration section of our online Biosafety Training Registration form, the PI can choose one of the three options (ARC, Biosafety, PI) for their staff’s practical training.
Biosafety Level 3 Training
This course will offer students an in-depth understanding of biosafety principles, practices and techniques that are necessary to successfully conduct research in an BSL3 laboratory.
Animal Biosafety Level 3 Training
This course will offer students an in-depth understanding of biosafety principles, practices and techniques that are necessary to successfully conduct research in an ABSL3 laboratory.
This is a comprehensive training that covers powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) donning/doffing with PPE, entry/exit, workflow depending on risk, and incident response and reporting.
Biosafety Level 4 Training
The BSL4 training program provides training on facility specific emergency response, facility design, safe work practices, and facility operations. The BSL4 training program is a collaborative effort between biological safety staff, biocontainment engineers,
laboratory directors and principal investigators. BSL3 Training is a prerequisite for this course. Please contact us at Biotrain@utmb.edu for this specialized training program

Nonhuman Primate Theoretical Training
Nonhuman primate training is mandatory for personnel that will work with nonhuman primates or enter nonhuman primate rooms. The training program is comprised of didactic and hands-on training. The training required for an individual is based on the type
of work that they will be performing. All personnel that will have direct or indirect contact with nonhuman primates must be medically cleared by the UTMB Occupational Health program in order to enroll in the training program.
