Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) approved on-line training is required of principal investigators (PI) and co-investigators (CI) prior to submitting proposals for full review and expedited review. Only the PI is required to complete IRB training prior to submitting proposals for exempt status reviews, except when children are involved in the study. In this case, both the PI and CI are required to complete basic IRB training. The on-line training program is available at NIH Office of Extramural Research.
A copy of the training certificate with your Dragon ID number and name of your department is to be submitted to the chair of the University IRB prior to completing an initial proposal. A record of the training will be kept on file, as well as in a database for future reference. Investigators may obtain IRB forms upon completion of their training.
