CITI Human Subjects Research Training
Each of the two curriculums offered through CITI contains general IRB information in addition to information more specific to the type of research: Biomedical or Social & Behavioral. The CITI human subjects training modules can be completed in multiple log-on sessions and total completion time is approximately 2-3 hours. A Course Completion Report will be generated when all required quizzes are completed with a total score of at least 80%. If you have already registered for a CITI account, click the login button to be able to access your account including any prior training that you have taken through CITI. Note that some training allows a refresher course be taken to update the training rather than having to repeat the entire training course. If you have not previously signed up for a CITI account, you may use the Register button to create an account at no charge. Click here to access the Human Subjects CITI training.
As a member of CITI, TWU offers several training options for researchers. Note that the human subjects training should not be confused with the CITI Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training (these are separate requirements). The IRB does not require RCR training and RCR training certificates should not be submitted to the IRB. Also note that the RCR training WILL NOT fulfill the requirement for human subjects training so make sure that you are accessing a human subjects course when completing the training for this requirement. A human subjects refresher course is also available on the TWU CITI site.
The TWU IRB also accepts training from NIH. View information regarding the human subjects NIH training. Please note that the completion of only one training course is required, CITI or NIH, not both.
