VIU utilizes the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program online training modules for ethics training in human subjects research. All principal investigators, faculty, and students involved in research that utilizes human participants are required to complete CITI training and to keep such training current prior to receiving IRB approval.
CITI training can be accessed at the following address: https://www.citiprogram.org
To begin training, you will need to create an account or log in to an existing account on the CITI Program website and affiliate with Virginia International University.
