CITI Training

These courses are intended to provide a foundation for institutions that are working to promote Responsible Conduct of Research training for work involving human subjects, animals, and export controls. 

Our hope is that web-based instruction like this will expose investigators and graduate students to the kinds of ethical issues and federal requirements they encounter throughout their careers and prepare them to deal with those.  

Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI)

TTU subscribes to the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) as means of providing training in the Responsible Conduct of Research, Animal Subjects, Human Subjects, and Export Controls.

Personnel on funded grants are required to complete training in the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). For those who have completed training through another course or if you’re not sure training has been completed, please contact the Office of Research.

The courses you take depend on your role in research. The complete list of courses available to the TTU community is below.
