All members of the research team, including non-University of Arizona affiliated personnel, are expected to complete online training prior to conducting any activities involving human subjects research. Collaborators and investigators overseen by the University of Arizona IRB through a collaborative Institutional Agreement must have valid human subjects training. Refer to our Single IRB Review guidance for more information. The IRB will not approve protocols in which study personnel do not have current, completed human subjects training. The University of Arizona IRB will accept one of the following three methods of training for personnel engaged in research whom are not affiliated with the University of Arizona:
- CITI Human Research Training;
- OHRP Human Research Training; or
- Community Partnered Research Ethics Training
It is the responsibility of the University of Arizona investigator to document in the IRB Application which training method will be used for personnel not affiliated with the University of Arizona.
