CITI Training Requirements for Authorized Study Personnel

Effective July 1, 2021: The Peoria IRB (PIRB) is no longer requiring the completion of the CITI GCP Course for NEW investigators/authorized research personnel (Basic GCP Course) or for PIRB-approved investigators/authorized research personnel (GCP Refresher Course) UNLESS they are performing:

  1. NIH funded research; and/or
  2. Clinical trials of drugs, biologics, and devices, as well as behavioral interventions and social science research studies.
    • A clinical trial is a research study performed in people aimed at evaluating a medical, surgical, or behavioral intervention. They are the primary way that researchers find out if a new treatment, like a new drug, medical device (for example, a pacemaker) or behavioral intervention is safe and effective in people.

Effective April 1, 2018: The UICOM-PIRB IS changing the CITI training requirements related to Human Subject Research. The UICOM-P IRB has adopted the following CITI training requirements effective 4/1/18 for any new study, continuing review, or addition of authorized study personnel:

  1. Biomedical, Social & Behavioral Basic Human Subjects Course (UICOM-P options) or Human Subject Research (HSR) Course (OSF option)
  2. Conflict of Interest
  3. Good Clinical Practice (ICH Focus) (GCP)
  4. Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR)

Effective January 1, 2017: NIH Policy requires Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training for all NIH-funded investigators and staff who are involved in the conduct, oversight, or management of clinical trials. The UICOM-PIRB CITI GCP for Clinical Trials with Investigational Drugs and Biologics (ICH Focus) fulfills this requirement.

Effective March 2016: The UICOM-PIRB made available additional CITI training courses related to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) and Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR).
