Don't need Initial Bloodborne Pathogen training? Then you can complete your Initial Safety Training for Researchers online!

If you don't directly work with or have a potential to be exposed (by working in the area) to human blood, human body fluid, human cell lines, human tissue cultures, lentivirus, and/or animals injected with HIV or Hepatitis B then you don't need to take Initial Bloodborne Pathogen training and you don't need to come to a classroom session.
