All investigators, staff and students involved in Human Subjects Research are required to complete the online Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) human subjects online training program. This training is valid for a three-year period, after which time a refresher CITI course or additional training must be completed.
To meet the needs of the IRB, you must take the "Social-Behavioral-Educational Research (SBER)" course.
All members of the research team involved in the design, conduct, or reporting of the research are required to complete this training. IRB approval will not be granted for proposed research in which investigators have not completed the human research protections training. Investigators who have not completed the required training will be restricted from submitting any new research.
Once all modules in a course are marked as complete, CITI will automatically notify the UMass Lowell IRB.
