    As part of the application for all secondary science endorsements, it is a requirement that all Utah science teachers complete a Lab Safety Certification Course. This certification process helps to assure that all of our science teachers are knowledgeable about the practices necessary for safe lab experiences for students and themselves.

    This course is a four-week online class.

    This Lab Safety Certification Online Course meets the Safety Certification requirement for ALL Utah State Science Endorsements.

    Upon successful completion, the participants will receive 1.0 Utah State Board of Education (USBE) Credit that will post to the State Professional Learning MIDAS Education System. This course is not refundable under the new USBE endorsement program.
