Updated Working with the IACUC - Animal Care and Use (ACU)

Working with the IACUC has been significantly updated to improve the course’s content, structure, alignment with current regulatory guidelines, and delivery. The course still provides the same necessary basic training on the protection of animal subjects used in research, but now with nine comprehensive, concise modules and two additional modules of interest.

Subscribing organizations may add and/or switch to the updated course starting today. It is available for no additional fee. However, there are a few key things to understand and consider if your organization utilizes the existing course. Review key considerations.

Updated Belmont Report and Its Principles module - Human Subjects Research (HSR)

Effective 16 April 2018, CITI Program brought back the module entitled "Belmont Report and Its Principles." An earlier iteration of this module was retired 17 August 2017, because discussion of the application of Belmont's principles to research is covered in other core modules. However, we have decided to restore this module to facilitate learner access of the full reading of the Belmont Report. The new version of this module will present the learners with a link to access the report and require them to read it in its entirety.

If your organization previously utilized this module, we will restore it automatically to your gradebooks.
