NIH Ethics Training

As of February 15, 2007, all study personnel (including principal investigators, co-investigators, faculty advisors, research assistants, etc.) listed on submitted proposals are required to have completed online training regarding the protection of human subjects in research. The training requires approximately three hours total to complete, but does not have to be done all in one session.

Once you have completed the training, please upload an electronic version of your certificate to IRBNet.

Please note that your proposal will not be registered and/or approved until all study personnel listed on the proposal have completed their training.

The instructional course and assessment is sponsored by the National Institute of Health and is widely used by many IRBs for training purposes. The training can be found on the Protecting Human Research Participants website.
