All personnel involved in the research (Principal Investigator, Co-Investigator, Faculty Advisor, and data collectors/analyzers), including exempt review projects, must complete training and provide the certificate of completion with the IRB application. There is no cost for training, but registration is required. You may complete the training in one session or return. After completion of the training courses, you will receive a certificate. The certificate of completion is applicable for three years from the date of completion.
If you have a CITI account at another institution, add an affiliation to Georgia Southern from the link on the Main Menu of your CITI account to receive credit for modules taken at that institution and to utilize the GS electronic systems. (Do not drop you affiliation with prior institutions or courses taken under that institution will be deleted by the CITI system. You may have an unlimited number of affiliations.) Be aware that some institutions have customized their training selections or modules. Only the standard modules will transfer.
