Required Training for Investigators

Prior to having a proposal approved, investigators and faculty advisors of student investigators must complete online coursework on human subject protection. Certification will be required prior to the IRB providing approval for non-exempt research. To facilitate training at Randolph College, the College has subscribed to the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI).

Instructions

  • Go to the CITI Program homepage and click on the “Register” button at the top right.
  • When prompted to “Select Your Organization Affiliation”, enter Randolph College.
  • Continue to Step 2 and go through the rest of the registration process.
  • After registering, complete the appropriate modules listed below.

Training Requirements for Faculty and Staff

Faculty (including faculty advisors of student research) and staff must complete registration and the following modules:

  1. Belmont Report and CITI Course Introduction.
  2. Defining Research with Human Subjects (SBE).
  3. The Regulations (SBE).
  4. Assessing Risk (SBE).
  5. Informed Consent (SBE).
  6. Privacy and Confidentiality (SBE).
  7. Unanticipated Problems and Requirements in Social and Behavioral Research (will show as an elective, but must complete).

Other modules may be required by the IRB. For example, persons doing research abroad will be required to complete modules on research outside the United States. a researcher working with children as subjects would likely be directed to complete modules on this protected subject population. The Chair will inform investigators if additional modules are required.

Training Requirements for IRB Members

The IRB may require the completion of additional training when vulnerable populations are involved or other needs are indicated.

The training specified in this policy relates to human subjects research. Investigators will often find that other training is a requirement of grants or special programs. Investigators conducting grant-funded research should check with Randolph College’s Sponsored Programs Officer for further training requirements.
