Researcher Training

Human Subjects Protection Training Requirements

All Principal Investigators (PIs) and Co-PIs on human subjects research protocols must complete human subjects protection training. The IRB strongly recommends that anyone else associated with the research team who will be interacting with the participants or have access to the data also take complete human subjects protection training. At this time, this training must be fulfilled by completing the CITI online training.

Training must be renewed every three (3) years. The IRB strongly recommends that anyone else associated with the research team who will be interacting with the participants or having access to the data take one of the training options. For more information about CSU’s Human Subjects Protection Training, please see the CSU Human Subjects Protection Training Requirements or contact the IRB or RICRO.

Training Status in eProtocol

When creating your protocol on the eProtocol system, you will need to know your training status. All PIs and Co-PIs must have up-to-date training.

If a protocol is NIH funded, all key personnel (as defined by NIH) must complete the training.
