–Effective January 2018–
All PIs and SPIs must complete a CITI IRB training course in order to conduct research at UWM. We will no longer accept the old UWM Human Subjects Training Tutorial (pre-2011) as fulfillment of the training requirement.
This training will need to be renewed every 3 years by completing a CITI refresher course. CITI will send you reminders and make the refresher training available in your account when the 3 year expiration date approaches. The refresher training is shorter than the initial training.
If you completed the UWM Human Subjects Training but have not completed CITI training, you should complete CITI training as soon as possible. If you have completed CITI, but it was more than 3 years ago, you should complete a refresher as soon as possible. We verify that PIs and SPIs have current training for every new study we review.
IMPORTANT: We will not issue IRB approval for a new study until both the PI and SPI have current CITI training. This includes studies conducted by a student; the faculty advisor serving as PI must also have current CITI training.
