ToxTutor is a self-paced tutorial covering key principles of toxicology for users of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) chemical and toxicology databases. While a knowledge of anatomy and physiology is not required for viewing ToxTutor, the Introduction to the Human Body from the National Cancer Institute provides a good introduction to the topic.

This course is approved for 3 contact hours for California Registered Environmental Health Specialists (REHSs) and National Environmental Health Association’s (NEHA) REHS/RSs. To take the tutorial and receive a certificate, please register and complete the tutorial through our free learning management system.
