Online & In-Person Training

CITI Online Training

Before you begin the online RCR courses we encourage you to confirm which training you are required to take. If you are required to take online training, and to ensure ease of CITI training registration, first identify whether you are a new user or you are already a registered user through CITI.  The process of selecting your course will be different based on your current status.

New User Registration – Course Selection Instructions

More than one selection can be made when signing up through the new user registration process. If you have selected more than one course and it pertains to human subjects protections (i.e., IRB) or Conflict of Interest (COI), please refer to the human subjects training instructions or COI training instructions page for further guidance.

RCR In-person Training Workshop

Those receiving certain NIH support requiring in-person training, are required to complete face-to-face faculty and staff led workshops consisting of a series of short lectures, discussions and presentations of cases on scientific integrity and responsible conduct in research.

The Responsible Conduct in Research Workshop covers the following areas:

Faculty/Staff Participation: The Research Integrity Officer, Director of Research Compliance, and other faculty or staff are lead instructors in the workshop who contribute to the rich discussions that characterize the training.

Duration: The RCR Workshop consists of eight classroom hours, delivered in segmented meetings scheduled in consecutive weeks during the semester. Attendees are required to complete all eight contact hours of the sessions.

Frequency: The workshops are usually scheduled each year during both the Fall semesters. Additional workshops may be scheduled depending on participant enrollment and demand.

After completion of the workshop an “RCR Completion Letter” is provided to the attendee and a record of such is maintained by Research Compliance Services.

The Spring 2024 RCR in-person training will be held on February 13th and 20th from 1-5pm in the Prem S. Paul Research Center at Whittier School, Room 152. Registration is required:

Registrants must complete the CITI Responsible Conduct of Research online training module AND both in-person sessions in order to satisfy the 8 hours of in-person training/funding agency requirements.
