IRB Required Training

Completion of the basic (initial) CITI course (either Biomedical or Social/Behavioral) is required for all Georgia Tech investigators who will conduct human subjects research, regardless of funding status.  CITI training must be refreshed every three years by completing the REFRESHER modules.

Training certifications will be manually entered into individuals’ profiles in IRBWISE by the Office of Research Integrity Assurance. Do not delay submitting a protocol or amendment while waiting for training certification to appear.  Certifications will only be entered after submission of a protocol or amendment that names the individual. 

If your human subjects research involves the Department of Defense, you may need to complete the Department of the Navy CITI modules.  The Georgia Tech IRBs will accept these modules as sufficient and will not also require completion of the Georgia Tech CITI modules. 

To begin:  Log in to the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program to access training via SSO (Single Sign On). Your GT Account and Password will be required.
