How can my organization track the progress of learners?

An organization’s designated CITI Program admin can receive a completion report in a daily email, create them on an as needed basis, or schedule an automated download. We can also create custom reports based on your needs. Automated downloads and custom reports are available for an additional one-time set up fee.

How does this training fit with our other educational components?

CITI Program content is designed to be part of an overall foundation of training. We recommend that organizations build frameworks of training that combine CITI Program content with face-to-face training, one-on-one mentoring, and other types of learning opportunities, as appropriate to the particular topics and their organizational cultures.

Which courses are included in the base subscription?

We currently offer 6 base subscription options - Research I, Research II, Higher Education, Health & Safety, Science Fairs, and "Make your Own." Each subscription includes unlimited access to its available courses for learners at each of your organization’s paid sites. Visit our Organizational Subscription page for more details.

Can I add courses to my base subscription?

Yes, you can add courses to your base subscription for an additional cost per year/per site at any time. Please review the course catalog to review your options.

How do I select a passing score for my organization?

We will work with your selected CITI Program admins to establish learner groups, which each has access to a particular set of courses. During this process, we will also work together to determine the passing scores for the courses they need to complete.

What other customization options does CITI Program offer?

We strive to meet the needs of our subscribing organizations and learners, and offer many customization options. In addition to the ability to include institutional-specific content and select content from across CITI Program courses, we offer custom reporting, automated report downloading, translation services, and Single Sign-On.

What happens if a learner at my organization needs to take courses for another organization affiliated with CITI Program?

Learners are able to take CITI Program courses assigned by more than one subscribing organization. To do so, they need to log in to their CITI Program account and follow the steps described in our Support Center to affiliate with an additional organization.

If my organization is using a single IRB (sIRB), how can learner completion information be shared with appropriate individuals?

Your organization can download a completion report anytime online. This report can be printed or shared by email.
