    CMAR - Preparatory Class for the Animal Resources (AR) Exam

    We are heroes to millions of people and animals, and our work makes a profound difference in this world. As leaders, we have a responsibility to support and drive our employees and operations effectively, efficiently, and compassionately. CMAR certification provides us with a unique set of knowledge and tools to accomplish this.

    Please join us for a preparatory workshop for the Animal Resource exam. Topics covered include IACUC, occupational health and safety, regulations and compliance, veterinary care, and fiscal management.

    This prep course alone will NOT prepare you for the AR exam, but can be used to kick start your preparation, help you along the way, or as final revision to refresh your existing studies.
