Refresher IRB Training

Biomedical 2018 and Social/Behavioral/Educational 2018 are the ONLY courses accepted for IRB refresher training at this time. 
Following completion of IRB initial training, UAB IRB policy requires refresher training once every three years for key personnel involved in human subjects research. All training courses are valid for three years from the date of training completion. A training course completed on September 26, 2017 will be valid until September 25, 2020.
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. Both course options contain the same elements. Complete only one course.
Both courses require investigators to complete only 2 required modules.
YOU must SELECT the appropriate course from the CITI Curriculum! 
Registration for the CITI Program works differently for those with and without UAB Blazer ID and password.
Do you have a 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.
