Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)
Required CITI training for IRB submission has been modified. The CITI Human Subjects Research (HSR) module has been implemented and is now the required module for IRB submission. The following pertains to the HSR module requirements:
- Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) modules submitted before March 19, 2012 are acceptable for meeting IRB training requirements.
- Beginning March 19, 2012 CITI HSR training is required to meet IRB training requirements.
- HSR training certification expires after three years. The HSR refresher course has been implemented to replace the need to complete the full HSR course. Please note: After the three year expiration of the RCR course, the full HSR course will be required for compliance with the IRB training requirement.
- The CITI RCR course is still required for all NIH and NSF investigators to comply with NIH and NSF training requirement.
CITI training is the course designated by Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi to comply with Responsible Conduct of Research requirements. All PIs with funding from the NIH or NSF are required to complete CITI training. Additionally, anyone submitting an IRB protocol is required to complete CITI training.
