Important Note (2/16/16):
- Non-Exempt CITI required training may be used in lieu of exempt CITI required training, specifically:
- non-exempt biomedical covers exempt biomedical data and specimen
- non-exempt social and behavioral covers exempt
- Per BOR policy, students cannot be the sole Principal Investigator for their project (see policy HERE), and therefore faculty advisors must be listed as PIs for their student-led research and complete required human subjects research training (and include their completion report) for their students' research.
- Investigators and Key Personnel who have completed CITI training from another institution may use the training they have completed from that institution given that the modules completed are the same and have been completed within the last 3 years. By adding University of Hawaii as a participating institution to their existing CITI account, the unexpired training will automatically be credited once the user's UH courses have been selected as instructed above.
For NIH-funded research, an alternative to CITI Training is available:
The PRISM Online Training is an hour long online tutorial developed for researchers, research staff, and IRBs that include topics of readability and literacy, gain useful skills when creating or reviewing consent forms and other research participant materials. To supplement, the PRISM Readability Toolkit can be found in the Policies & Guidance section HERE.
Course is free and accessible here: http://prism.grouphealthresearch.org
