IRB Required Training

Completion of the basic (initial) Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (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.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Completing CITI Human Subject Basic Course

Training certifications will be manually entered into individuals' profiles in IRBWISE by ORIA staff. 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, which satisfies Georgia Tech's CITI training requirements.
