Online Training

SRM offers online and instructor-led safety training for workplace and research/clinical studies areas. Online safety training is available through two different applications:  BioRAFT and Canvas


BioRAFT is VCU's central hub for laboratory safety and compliance. For people working in labs or supporting research activities, it is the first place to go to complete training. Canvas is the secondary application to complete training for courses that have not yet transitioned to BioRAFT.

Canvas online training is primarily for employees not working in labs or supporting research activities AND/OR for students whose professor designates a specific course as part of the student's curriculum. Canvas offers generalized training intended to supplement, not replace, task-specific training.
