Required Training for Researchers

Federal Regulations (45 CFR 46) and the SIUC Institutional Review Board require all personnel in human subjects research to complete training in human research protections.

To meet this requirement, SIUC researchers should complete the course:

Social & Behavioral Research - Basic/Refresher,

provided by the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI). CITI courses are provided at no charge for SIUC researchers. While other courses may have similar names, this course is the only training accepted by the SIUC Institutional Review Board.  This course is appropriate for first-time users as well as for those renewing their training. 

All Principal Investigators and personnel listed on the Key Personnel table on Form B-1 in the application must have current, complete, and correct training for application approval. 

CITI training is valid for 3 years.
