On completion of ethics training, investigators receive a certification that is valid for three years. Re-certification every three years is required. Manhattanville subscribes to an online training program, the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI), and as of January 2009 all new certifications must be obtained through online courses at CITI.
To access the online training, visit www.citiprogram.org, create an account, and choose Manhattanville College as your affiliation. When you click on "Add a course", you will be asked to select your curriculum. Scroll down to the Human Subjects Research area and choose one of the 5 Basic courses, depending on your subject area and status:
*Note that research assistants must complete the Social Behavioral Research course if the research is not minimal risk.
When the course is completed successfully, notification will be sent automatically to the IRB Chair; no further proof of completion needs to be submitted.
