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.
Note: 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.
NOTE: While the CSU IRB Chairs have conducted on-campus training sessions for many years, because the regulations will be revised in January 2018, we have decided that we would not schedule any On-Campus Human Subjects Protection Training Sessions until 2018 when the revised regulations will be implemented. Please check this website in late 2017/early 2018 for our schedule for on-campus training sessions next semester.
