Department of Chemistry Safety Training
Work in chemical/wet research labs is prohibited until an active Safety Training Certification is obtained. The Safety Training is a University requirement and must be completed with a passing score of 80% (or 80 points). The certification is only valid for one year and if you are continuing research past one year, you will need to complete a refresher quiz. Fill out the form to receive an invite to SJSU Canvas in order review the study material and/or make an appointment to take the quiz.
Students must also be enrolled in CHEM 180 or CHEM 298 during the fall and spring semesters in order to work in the lab. Students registering after Advance Registration Period will incur late registration fees.
