Human Subjects In Research Training
This is an online course for all university personnel involved in human subject research research. All personnel must complete prescribed mandatory training prior to protocol approval and prior to working with humans.
Who is required to take this training?
Key Study Personnel (KSP) include the Principal Investigator, other investigators and research personnel who are directly involved in conducting research with study participants or who are directly involved in using study participants' identifiable private information during the course of the research.
All KSP associated with your project must complete the prescribed CHS Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) education on the protection of human subject research before the IRB can grant final approval for submissions. Training requirements may vary, based on the specific study activities. Approved training expires every 3 years.
Training is available online through CITI Program.

If you have completed the CHS CITI training modules within the last 3 years, this information will be verified by our office upon each IRB submissions.
If you or your KSP completed the CITI certification with another institution and/or organization within the last 3 years, you can affiliate your certification with CHS by following the online instructions on the CITI website. Coursework completion certificate and course modules will be reviewed for reciprocity. If the coursework is comparable, CHS will accept their training.
