HSIRB Training Presentations
Human Subject researchers must complete the initial human subjects’ course and pass the required testing modules with an overall score of 85% to receive a training certificate. UIW has built multiple courses based on the college / school of an investigator to reduce any confusion regarding which option a researcher must choose. The initial certification is good for three years, per UIW IRB policy. Upon expiration of the initial certification, refreshers courses are available, which upon completion are also good for a three year period. The refresher course may be repeated every three years thereafter.
For assistance with CITI training or if any questions arise regarding training expiration dates or additional requirements, please contact the Office of Research Development for assistance at (210) 805-3036.
