ALS ONSITE USERS must complete four online classes before they may be granted access to the ALS (ALS-1001, EHS 0470, SEC 0203, and LBL 0012).
Steps to complete online training
- Be ready to start with your LBNL ID number
- If you don’t have an LBNL ID, tell us when you will arrive onsite using the instructions found in the User Guide’s Step 5: Get Access to Work On-Site
- Open each training class webpage (links below) and complete the online training course. When prompted, choose the non-LDAP login and enter your LBNL ID number to receive credit.
- ALL ALS USERS are required to complete four online classes before ALS access will be granted:
***Please note that if you do not complete GERT training by midnight on your start date and you have been issued a badge, your badge will automatically become deactivated.
Some work requires additional safety training.
All users will receive on-the-job training that is specific to each beamline.
There are also additional training requirements for specific beamlines and hazardous activities at the ALS.
