Register for Online RCR Training

Online RCR Training is offered through CITI. To fulfill the training requirement, you must complete the “Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) Curriculum”, and you must pass each module with a score of 80% or higher.

Completion of another CITI Training Module (such as the Social & Behavioral Research Modules used by the IRB or those used by the IACUC) DOES NOT fulfill the RCR training requirement.
