All Kenyon College researchers, research advisers, department/program chairs, administrative department heads and IRB members must complete the appropriate modules. Chairs and Faculty Advisers who do not complete the course will impede the progress of their students' IRB reviews.
REGARDLESS of funding agency requirements, the Kenyon IRB requires that ALL Kenyon researchers involved in "human subjects" research must complete the required learning modules from the on-line CITI Human Subjects Research Educational Program.
The IRB will not process an application until the CITI program has been completed by the P.I., Faculty Advisor, and Chair or Administrative Division Head. CITI will send the IRB Administrator notice of your completion. You should print out a copy of your completion certificate for your own files.
The CITI Human Subjects Research Educational Program consists of different courses:
Once you have completed a course, you will be able to access and complete other modules that may be of interest. You may be asked to complete additional modules depending on subject populations or international research.
Kenyon College requires recertification every three(3) years. The CITI Refresher Course will satisfy the recertification requirement. CITI will email you notification when you need to recertify. If you are unsure when your certification is due to expire, please contact the IRB Administrator (740) 427-5748) or via email to email@example.com.
Be sure to register for the appropriate learning group. If you have a question about which group (see below) you should choose, call or email Jami Peelle 5748.
You are most likely the P.I. (Primary Investigator) unless you are registering as an IRB committee member.
You should register for the Learner Group most appropriate for your position and or type of research.
Once the required modules have been completed, the grade book should be checked to ensure that all modules have been completed. Users should complete the confirmation form and submit. The Kenyon College IRB will receive electronic notification of completion from CITI; however, users should print and keep the completion report for their own records and just in case verification is needed.
