Lab Safety Training is a three hour in-class training session. It is recommended that users register for this training as soon as possible. Once completed users will be issued a certificate. Please see the links below:

- Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS) Test: Select WHMIS - for laboratory workers
- Centre for Research in Photonics Safety Manual: Please print and sign the final page of the manual, to be provided to the CRPuO Administrative Assistant (ARC 350)
Tool Training will be provided by our lab technologists on all tools and processes once the mandatory training is completed. While each tools’ training requirements are unique, with some taking months to master, they all involve one on one sessions with staff members until you are authorized to use the tool independently. There is a sign-off procedure to access tools needed for a project. We propose to train users as required, as equipment needs will be assessed on a project-basis. The fees associated with training have already been included in your equipment usage rates.
Registration: In order to gain access to our facility, you must complete the information requested on our registration form. If more information is required, our lab technologists will communicate with you directly using the contact information provided.
