 To be certified to work with laboratory animals at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, all faculty, staff, and students are required to take the IACUC Animal Handler's Exam. The exam consists of 30 multiple choice questions. The exam is not timed, however, each page does time out after 30 minutes so be sure to save your responses as you go along. Good luck!
