HRPP Training

Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Human Subjects Research Training is now available to SDSU investigators.  CITI is highly regarded in the research community and is used at most major universities.  CITI provides comprehensive human subjects protection education and training.  The CITI modules have been designed to provide both biomedical and social/behavior researchers with targeted and relevant information.

Due to changes in the 2018 Common Rule (e-CFR) effective January, 21, 2019, CITI training requirements have changed. CITI Information Privacy and Security (IPS) training is now required for human subjects research meeting exempt criteria at 45 CFR 46.104(d)(2)(iii), 45 CFR 46.104(d)(3)(C)(iii), 45 CFR 46.104(d)(7) or (8).
