The Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) is pleased to announce that training offered through the CITI Program website is now secured by the UConn Single Sign-On NetID. Faculty, staff, and students at the Storrs and regional campuses will now be able to access the CITI Program website using their UConn NetID and password, instead of/in addition to a specific CITI Program website username and password.
The CITI Program is used by OVPR Research Compliance Services and UConn faculty, staff, students, and affiliates for online training related to animal care and use, biosafety, research with human subjects, NIH Good Clinical Practice, and Responsible Conduct of Research. Since partnering with CITI, over 20,000 UConn learners have used the CITI Program website to fulfill their regulatory training requirements.
Utilizing the UConn Single Sign-On makes it easier for faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students to access the CITI Program training courses with their existing UConn NetID and eliminates a unique username or password specifically for the CITI Program. It also assures faculty, staff, and student learners using CITI are correctly identified in training reports, making it easier to tell if the appropriate coursework has been completed.
To take advantage of this new feature, simply log in through our institution on the CITI Program website at https://www.citiprogram.org instead of using your existing CITI login credentials. Further information about CITI Training requirements for the UConn IRB can be found on our website at http://research.uconn.edu/irb/citi-training/.
