All faculty, staff, and students must complete the CITI Program in the Protection of Human Research Subjects training to carry out their own research or supervise a student's research project.
Upon completion of the training course, a copy of the training certificate will be sent automatically to the Iona College Institutional Contact.
The CITI training certificate expires at the end of two years; at that time, a notification will be sent to the researcher by CITI. The researcher may renew the certificate by completing a short refresher course. This will extend the certificate for an additional two years. The refresher course may be completed twice, for a total of six years (initial training, plus two refresher courses). At the end of the six-year cycle, the researcher must complete the entire training course.
