Certification Test Requirements

Beginning October 1, 2010, everyone involved in human subject's research (all PIs, CoPIs, faculty sponsors, etc.) must take and pass the Social/Behavioral Researchers Module in the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative before the IUSB IRB office will accept a new protocol, amendment, or continuing review on an existing protocol.

The new training modules are available from the Research Ethics, Education and Policy (REEP) page. Make sure you click on the Social/Behavioral Researchers module in section two for Human Subjects Research.
