Institutional Review Board (IRB)

Required Training

Rensselaer has joined over 830 institutions and facilities from around the world in using the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program for training in the Protection of Human Subjects in Research.

The CITI Human Subjects Research Education Program is a Web-based program that consists of training modules for Biomedical Researchers and modules for Social-Behavioral Researchers, each focused on a different aspect of bio-ethics and human subjects research. CITI certification for all members of a research team is required and must be documented on the IRB proposal application. Active certification status is set for three (3) years.

Researchers should visit www.citiprogram.org and register with Rensselaer as their participating institution to get a user name and password before taking the training course. Once the required modules have been completed, the grade book should be checked to ensure that all modules show as completed.

The Office of Research at Rensselaer will automatically receive an electronic notification of completion from CITI; however, users should print and keep the completion report in case verification is needed. Researchers will need their training completion date for the IRB Proposal application form. For complete instructions on using the CITI program, click here.

Any questions regarding IRB training requirements or the use of the CITI Program should be directed to irb@rpi.edu.

Direct all inquiries to irb@rpi.edu
