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.
- BYU IRB Tutorial certificates dated before January 1, 2014 are not accepted.
- Researchers who have completed a human subjects research training course other than CITI may provide a copy of their training certificate to the IRB office with their IRB application. BYU IRB will determine whether the non-CITI training course satisfies the mandatory education requirement.
