CITI Program

Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) training is an on-line training program. There are several learner groups to choose from to satisfy the training requirement (see descriptions, below) for your specific type of research. If key research personnel have taken CITI training elsewhere, the previously completed training will be accepted at UAlbany, with the caveat that key research personnel must complete any CITI courses required by UAlbany that have not already been completed. Please contact the Office for Pre-Award and Compliance Services (PACS) if you need assistance with determining which learner group is appropriate for you or with accessing or registering with CITI.
