Nuclear and Particle Physics - Lab Syllabus

2021 Spring Semester

Jan 20-29: Students registered for this course must complete all required lab safety training prior to entering the lab and undertaking any activities. Once notified, complete the required module(s) no later than the first lab meeting. Until all required Lab Safety Training is completed, a student will not be given access to lab facilities, and will not be able to participate in any lab activities, and will earn a grade of zero for any uncompleted work. Once completed, Lab Safety Training is valid for the remainder of the same academic year (i.e., through the following August) and must be completed anew in subsequent years. There are no exceptions to this University policy. Failure to complete the required training will preclude participation in any lab activities, including those for which a grade is assigned. Questions regarding the online Lab Safety Training should be directed to the University Compliance Services training help line, 817-272-2080 or to compliance@uta.edu. The website for the training modules is www.uta.edu/training. Please complete all the lab trainings (Details Here: Nuclear Training Info ). You will not be allowed to enter the lab room until these trainings are completed.
