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.

We have two on-campus Human Subjects Protection training sessions scheduled for Fall semester 2018. The sessions will be presented by Matt Hickey, Biomedical IRB Chair, and will cover the essentials of human subjects regulations and ethics. Dr. Hickey will also provide an overview of the main changes in regulations that will be in effect in January 2019.
