In order to facilitate training in US Export Control Regulations, Illinois State University (ISU) as well has subscribed to a comprehensive research ethics training program called the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI). Persons not affiliated with ISU, but named in a protocol, are eligible to enroll in CITI training through our site. If you have completed CITI training through another institution, please contact the Research Ethics and Compliance office (REC) at 309-438-2529 or REC@ilstu.edu to determine if additional courses may be required.
The US Export Control Regulations course is under Question 4.
Although you may be required to complete only some of the available courses to satisfy a university requirement, you may choose to complete additional training as well. If you do not want to select additional coursework, be sure to either leave all options blank under a question or to select the "none of the above" option under the other questions.
If you have any questions as to whether you have enrolled in the appropriate course, please contact the Research Ethics and Compliance Office at 438-2529 prior to beginning the course.
Once you have selected your courses, follow the instructions to complete the curriculum and associated tests you have selected. Please note that once enrolled, the names of the courses may change. The "Educational, Social and Behavioral Research with human subjects" becomes "Social/Behavioral Research Course," and the "Students conducting no more than minimal risk research" course becomes "Student - Class Projects." "Working with the IACUC" becomes "Investigators, Staff and Students."
You can exit and re-enter the CITI site as often as needed to complete the selected curriculum. Each time you exit your progress will be recorded so that you can continue where you left off once you log in again.
Please note that falsification of CITI training completion reports is a violation of Illinois State University's Research Integrity Policy, and if discovered, will be responded to accordingly.
Once you complete a course, you will be able to print out a Completion Report from your learner's menu, and in some cases will have access to additional optional training modules. The Completion Report will have a unique number (also called the Reference Number) and an expiration date.
The Research Ethics and Compliance Office does not provide copies of completion reports to those who request them. Learners are responsible for all necessary documentation of their training, and may print copies of completion reports from within their learner's menu on the CITI web site at any time.The Research Ethics and Compliance Office is able to verify the authenticity of CITI Training completion reports. Contact the office at 438-2529 if you need to verify a report's authenticity.
Any university unit, office, or committee wishing to require completion of any of the various research ethics training courses by unit/committee members, staff or students should contact the Office of Research Ethics and Compliance at 438-2529 to discuss available options.
