CITI Certification

The successful completion of the basic course will satisfy institutional requirements for 5 years, after which a refresher course is required. Researchers and personnel on new applications or added to existing research must satisfy these ethics training requirements, or the IRB will not approve their inclusion on the research team.

Please read the tutorial below before going to the CITI website. The modules do not need to be completed in one sitting. You may save your work, log out of the system, and return at your convenience. You will need to re-enter the username and password each time you want to log into the CITI program.
