Refresher IRB Training

Biomedical 2015 and Social/Behavioral/Educational 2015 are the ONLY courses accepted for IRB refresher training at this time. New refresher courses will be available Summer 2018.
Following completion of IRB initial training, UAB IRB policy requires refresher training once every three years for key personnel involved in human subjects research. The UAB Office of the IRB has worked with the CITI Program to create different refresher training courses for (1) Biomedical and (2) Social/Behavioral/Educational researchers. UAB personnel may complete either of these courses to meet refresher training requirements. Both courses require investigators to complete three required modules and three of six elective modules.
Registration for the CITI Program works differently for those with and without UAB Blazer ID and password.

How can I document my IRB training?
To see the IRB's training records-for yourself or anyone else in our database-use the Training Records in IRB e-reports.
  • The OIRB does not provide completion certificates for individual IRB training courses.
  • The IRB database contains training information for non-UAB personnel that is not shown in BlazerNET or HealthStream.
  • HealthStream records may contain training information for UAB personnel that is not shown in the IRB database.
  • If you take the course course with a XIAS account-as soon as you pass the course-click "Grades" (under Course tools) and print that page if you want your own documentation.
