Animal Research Oversight Course (AROC)
The Animal Research Oversight Course (AROC) is designed to provide IACUC members and animal care and use program personnel with an engaging, interactive overview of the ethical principles, regulatory frameworks, and guidance that they rely on for their day-to-day work. This online course offers learners details about the purpose and function of the IACUC, and illustrates the IACUC protocol review process through case studies and the deliberations of a simulated IACUC. Learners who successfully complete a final assessment will receive a certificate of completion.
AROC takes approximately 4 hours to complete, and learners can pause and return to the course at their convenience. Learners also have access to supplemental materials, including an extensive glossary and resource directory.
