IRB Training

CITI LOGIN

One of the following courses is required for all AFFILIATED researchers on any IRB protocol:

  • Biomedical Research Investigators, Basic Course or Refresher Course (refresher course only if taken before)
  • Social & Behavioral Research Investigators, Basic Course or Refresher Course (refresher course only if taken before)
  • IRB Members (anyone can take this course; however, it is more intensive than the prior two courses and is only required of IRB members)

One of the following courses is required for all NON-AFFILIATED researchers on any IRB protocol:

  • Abbreviated Biomedical Research Investigators
  • Abbreviated Social & Behavioral Research Investigators
  • Biomedical Research Investigators, Basic Course or Refresher Course (refresher course only if taken before)
  • Social & Behavioral Research Investigators, Basic Course or Refresher Course (refresher course only if taken before)
  • IRB Members (anyone can take this course; however, it is more intensive than the prior two courses and is only required of IRB members)

Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) courses are NOT sufficient for research on an IRB protocol. RCR courses are only required for particular funding sources

If you have taken the training at a previous institution and now you are doing research at West Virginia University, you will need to affiliate with WVU via CITI in order for us to have record of your training.

    All Institutional Review Board members must complete the IRB Members CITI course. Each IRB chair must also complete the DON-Supported Extramural Performers CITI course (offered by the Department of The Navy) by following the instructions here.
