REQUIRED IRB TRAINING

 The University of Toledo requires all study personnel engaged in human subject research (including research using information and specimens from human subjects) to complete the applicable training mandated by the Terms of our Federalwide Assurance.

Human Subjects Research Training

All individuals requiring human subject research must complete the training process via the University's CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative) training website at https://www.citiprogram.org. This training must be completed before an individual can be approved as a member of the research team.

The Appropriate Curriculum are: Biomedical Researchers & Students OR Social & Behavioral- Educations Researchers & Students.  The Social & Behavioral- Educational Researcher IRB accepts Biomedical Researchers & Students CITI training. 

 

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY: There are two training courses: BASIC and REFRESHER.  Basic training must be completed before completing refresher courses. Comparable basic training form other institutions may be considered by contacting the HRPP Admin Office. 

You will first complete the BASIC course. Your BASIC training will expire three years after successful completion.  At that point, you will complete the REFRESHER courses every three years in the rotating cycle that your training expires. The system will direct you as to when another Basic course is due in your rotation cycle. Please see below the rotating cycles

BIOMEDICAL/CANCER =     BASIC   →    REFRESHER   →    REFRESHER    →   REFRESHER   →   BASIC

                         SBE=     BASIC   →    REFRESHER   →    REFRESHER    →  BASIC
