What is CITI training?
CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative) is an electronic training system used by many universities nationwide. In order to work on animal research protocols reviewed by the SOS IACUC, you need to complete CITI training.
CITI's electronic-based training is set up with a separate module of lessons for each type of animal used in research. Once you complete all of the training it is good for 5 years. You will be notified when to renew it. If you have active CITI training from another institution, please contact us.
