The IBC, as mandated by federal law, requires that specific training modules be completed prior to working on IBC protocols involving recombinant DNA or biohazardous materials.
Any person working on an IBC protocol is required to complete CITI training prior to beginning work. This extends to Principal Investigators and all laboratory personnel.
Each course contains a set of core modules and a set of electives. Each module consists of written material, followed by a short quiz. Training is self-directed, but typically can be finished in less than one day.
Liberty University has partnered with CITI to provide courses free to affiliated individuals. However, there are fees for participants wishing to obtain continuing education credits.
To begin taking CITI courses, you need to create a login. The IBC has provided login instructions below for help with this process. If you have any questions, please contact the IBC.
