Most all research opportunities require initial training(s) to help protect yourself and others. It is the student's responsibility to ask their faculty mentor which trainings are required to participate in research. Below is a list of trainings offered to students planning on completing undergraduate research at Augusta University. Please contact the appropriate training offices with your questions (linked below).
First-time undergraduate researchers handling chemicals are required to attend an in-person training with the Chemical Safety Office. CURS hosts student-researcher orientated trainings once a semester, and additional trainings are held monthly with AU students, faculty, and staff.
