This initial IRB training is required for all personnel conducting research with human participants at OU-NC. The refresher course/continuing education modules are required for every subsequent year. 

Key research personnel required to complete the CITI training include:

1. Faculty
2. Staff
3. Graduate students (working on a thesis or dissertation)
4. Anyone using data for purposes of independent research
5. Faculty sponsors
6. Persons receiving grant monies for human subject research
7. Those personnel with management responsibilities


Please note that the IRB CITI on-line training is separate from the campus-wide two-day Responsible Conduct of Research Training (RCR).  RCR training has a broad emphasis on research integrity that includes, but is not limited to, protection of human research participants.  The intent of the CITI training is to educate investigators specifically about human research participant protections and the federal regulations related to such protection, in order to improve the quality and safety of research conducted on the OU-Norman campus or other sites by OU-NC faculty, staff, and students.   Although there may be minimal overlap, the coverage of human research protections is inadequate to serve as an alternative mode of certification for the CITI training.

If you experience any difficulties in completing your education training using CITI, please contact our office to report the problem at (405) 325-8110.
