Initial Education Requirement

The initial training requirement must be satisfied through completion of one of two Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Basic Courses for the Protection of Human Research Subjects, either the Basic Course for Biomedical Research or the Basic Course for Social Behavioral Research. See the CITI website for instructions on registering and completing the course.

A passing score is 80%.

The University will honor completion of this training for five (5) years. Extension of certification expiration dates of previously completed training, for both initial and continuing education, was automatically extended to five years. The extension does not apply to training requirements for research conducted at the VA Sierra Nevada Health Care System (VASNHCS). 

All investigators and research team members who propose to conduct research at the VASNHCS must satisfy VA training requirements. For information about VA training requirements, contact the VASNHCS Research Office at (775) 328-1486.

Continuing Education Requirement and Recertification

All investigators and members of their research team must complete the requirements for continuing education as long as they are involving human subjects in research. After five years, human research protection education must be renewed.

A retake of the CITI Basic Course for Biomedical Research or the Basic Course for Social Behavioral Research is required for renewal.

Please contact the Research Integrity Office at (775) 327-2368 if you have any questions regarding training requirements.
