To be in compliance with federal regulations, all persons (faculty, staff, and/or students) submitting a proposal to the Institutional Review Board must complete an online, modular training course on the protection of human subjects in research. 

DIRECTIONS:

1) Go to the CITI website.

2) Under "Create an account" click "Register." 

3) Under "Select Your Organization Affiliation," choose SUNY - College at Brockport.

4) Click "Continue to Step 2" and register.

You do not have to register in advance and can access the course 24 hours a day.

You must complete the Group 2 Basic Course in order to submit an IRB proposal.

The Group 1 Basic Course is a separate training course. It provides a broad overview for undergraduate students in research courses and is not required as a prequisite for completing Group 2.

You may also need to take the following optional modules:

  • Research with prisoners

  • Conflict of Interest
  • Responsible Conduct of Research 

Each module can be printed out if you desire.You must take the brief quizzes at the end of each module and get a score of 75% on the collective modules to pass. If you don't pass the first time, you can retake each quiz.

After you have completed the requirements above, you can print out a course completion report. CITI certification is valid for three years, and your record of completion is available indefinitely for you to access online through the CITI website.
