In addition, all individuals noted above must obtain a certificate of completion from the NIH administered online training program for Protecting Human Research Participants (Office of Extramural Research)
After reading these materials and completing the training program, individuals must complete and submit to the IRB chair the IRB Training Declaration Form and a copy of NIH certificate of completion. These documents must be on file with the IRB before a department representative or member of the Executive Committee can review any IRB applications; or before a faculty supervisor can obtain automatic exemption for his/her course-based student research projects.
