Education and IRB Training Modules


To register and take the mandatory IRB training modules, go to the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) website. The link for the CITI website is** Please note that the required training is the Basic Course in the Protection of Human Research Subjects.  Investigators will choose to take this course as a Biomedical (Group 1) or Social/Behavioral (Group 2) investigator.  (The courses on the Responsible Conduct of Research also available on the CITI site are NOT required for the UMCIRB.)


** To make full use of recent enhancements and features of the CITI site, and to do so securely, use a current browser version when accessing CITI Program. The vast majority of browsers made available within the last 3-4 years will support all CITI Program features. Older versions may not, as they are often less secure and provide less functionality.


These training modules must be renewed every 3 years by completing the Refresher Course.


The UMCIRB office does not send out certificates of completion.  All those completing the education modules should print out their Report of Completion after finishing the required modules.


Helpful hints
  • Read the directions on the University of Miami web site. There is a test at the end of each module that must be completed. If you have questions, please call the UMCIRB at 252-744-2914.
  • You may print each module as you take them for future reference.
