Title: Finding A Learning Management System That Works For You  November 17, 2 pm Eastern

William Singleton – DVM, DACLAM, Animal Care Training Services (ACTS)

Language found in the The Guide, and in regulatory documents such as the Animal Welfare Act, and in PHS Policy requires the need to ensure personnel training is provided and properly documented.  Interest is growing in the laboratory animal science (LAS) community in Learning Management Systems (LMS) that allow information related to an employee’s training requirements to be documented and retained in one location.  There is a wide variety of Learning Management Systems that come in different sizes and varying price points.  This presentation will cover the variety of LMS that are available to the field of LAS and what information needs to be captured to satisfy regulatory and accrediting bodies.  CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
