Training

BSL-3 laboratories are specialized areas and working with BSL-3 pathogens require diligence from the researchers/workers to maintain safe laboratory conditions. Therefore, access to the BSL-3 work area is by authorization only and only a properly trained person will be allowed to work inside the BSL-3 facility. It is expected that, prior to training to work in the BSL-3 facility, a prospective user of the BSL-3 will have a good understanding of basic laboratory rules and competence in working with microorganisms within BSL2 facilities (with general culture and aseptic techniques).

A weeklong intensive training program has been designed for researchers for access/authorization and certification to use the facility. The first training program is likely to be scheduled in the 1st week of March.
