INSTRUCTIONS:

All enrolled ECE Students MUST have obtained safety training before being allowed to use any of our laboratories – this training is normally completed at the beginning of the 2nd year. If you have completed this training in prior years, there is no need to take it again. This online course contains 4 training modules for undergraduate students.

Failure to complete the required training may result in the loss of access to ECE laboratories, denied Eng. services during project courses, not considered for Co-op positions within our group, and your final grades might suffer up 5% penalty (at the discretion of the Professors or TAs). The safety training is hosted on UBC Canvas – visit this link to enroll: https://canvas.ubc.ca/enroll/88X6EC
