Have a specific question but don’t know who to contact? The people below can often field your questions!
What training do I need?
This is very specific to your lab, but in general everyone needs at least Lab 101 (in person 1st time). This course covers Chemical Hygiene and Fire Safety.
How do I appropriately complete laser training?
You need to take the online training course and you also need to fill out these forms! Most people forget that last part (:
