AALAS Learning Library

All individuals working with laboratory animals including principal investigators, research staff, students, fellows, and animal care personnel at Emory University have access to an online training program through the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS).

  • To document the completion of the course, you must take the exam. This will provide a record of compliance which is transferred to eIACUC and available under the Training section in the protocol.
  • DO NOT CREATE an account using the AALAS free account.
  • It is necessary for first-time users to follow the instructions provided via email to complete the registration in the AALAS platform and under the Emory Group.
  • When returning to this site later, please use the login you created initially, and do not re-enroll as this creates multiple training records for an individual.
