Important changes to animal user training billing

UBC went live with Workday on November 2, 2020. Existing Standing Journal Voucher authorizations have been replaced by an Internal Sales Delivery Form (Training). Please complete an Internal Sales Delivery Form for the Primary/Driver Worktag you wish to have set up for animal user training billing purposes with ACS. Laboratory users will receive a new Training Payment Processing code for use in Canvas for training related costs. This change will be implemented for course registrations as of November 10.

Availability of ACS training courses

Online and hands-on training courses are available to all UBC researchers. Due to safety requirements, the number of seats available for each hands-on training lab has been significantly reduced but the number of labs has been increased. For more information or to enroll, visit ACS Online & Lab Rodent Courses.

The format of our hands-on lab has been modified to meet COVID-19 safety requirements. Students are required to complete the webinar before attending a hands-on lab. The webinar is intended to reduce the face-to-face interactions during the hands-on lab.

For further information, refer to details and instructions presented in the training courses.

Course Enrollment: Prior to June 15

For students enrolled in courses prior to June 15, 2020, please visit UBC Canvas to continue your training.
