The safety, comfort, and well-being of research volunteers is of the utmost importance to the Utah State University IRB. The use of human subjects in your research requires a commitment to ethical standards and regulations that govern research involving human subjects. In an effort to provide comprehensive training on these ethical standards and regulations, Utah State University has made CITI training available to its research community.

All researchers who interact with participants or access their identifiable data must first be certified via CITI. To be certified at Utah State University, researchers must complete the Human Research Curriculum Basic Course, Group 1: Social and Behavioral Research Investigators and Key Personnel (video demonstration below) with an overall score of 80%. Researchers are welcome to complete the Group 2 course for IRB Members if they would like, but are not required to do so at this time.

CITI notifies the USU IRB of all Human Research Curriculum completions every evening. The following day, completion information will be entered in the IRB CITI Training Database by our student assistant. If you need the IRB to be notified of your CITI completion on the same day that you have taken it, please email your completion certificate to irb@usu.edu. Current CITI certification needs to be maintained for the duration of all human subjects research, and certification must be renewed every three years.

This step-by-step video below will walk you through the registration process:
