We would like to inform you of changes to our requirements for the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI), approved by the Academic Council and effective for all individuals involved in projects or renewals submitted to the IRB or ERC as of November 15, 2021.
*Expiration dates of three years have been established for the Human Research Course and the four learner groups within the course:
*Clinical Trial / Good Clinical Practice
*IRB Staff & Members
*Expiration dates are retroactive. If you have completed one of these courses any time prior to January 21, 2019, you will need to complete a refresher course immediately in order for your involvement in research to potentially be approved. Course content was updated to reflect the Revised Common Rule as of that date.
*If you have completed a course on January 21, 2019 or thereafter, your training is good for three years after the completion date.
*The CITI site will not send notices of expiration. However, the site now indicates current expiration dates for learner groups within the human research course. Our staff will also check training during the submission pre-review process and will notify you if it has expired.
* This change does not affect the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) course, which is only required of those seeking Federal funding. We have not established expiration dates on it because there is no harmonization of Federal RCR training rules. Renewal will be agency or award-specific.
*This change does not affect courses offered by other departments, such as Information Privacy Security (SSW), Animals (IACUC) or Bloodborne Pathogens (PA Program). Those departments set their own expiration dates, if any.
