How much time is involved with CITI training?

Typically, completing a required series of modules will take about 2 – 3 hours. However, the CITI training program is set up as a series of short (5-15 minute) modules that can be taken at any time from any place with internet access.

Is there a passing grade requirement for the CITI training?

Each required module has a short quiz of a few relatively straight-forward questions. In order to successfully complete the CITI training program, each course has a minimum required average score (usually 70-75%). Note that the goal of CITI training is for researchers to have an awareness and understanding of the issues associated with human or animal research protection. Thus, anyone may take the CITI training as many times as needed to obtain this level of education and training.

Upon successful completion, you will receive a certificate valid for two years.
