Research Compliance Training
Research training is a requirement for researchers involved with human subject, biosafety and vertebrate animal research.
NKU utilizes a web-based site, Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI), to meet these requirements.
NKU requires all researchers to:
-Take and pass the required research-relevant courses (animal subjects, human subjects, general research) with an 80% or higher for each individual module.
Researchers submitting grants through the Office of Research, Grants and Contracts to:
-Take and pass a Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI) module (Financial Conflicts of Interest: Overview, Investigator Responsibilities, and COI Rules (COI-Basic)) with an 80% or higher.
The CITI training system only requires an 80% average on all modules, however, NKU requires 80% on each individual module. Please be sure to pass each quiz with an 80% or higher.
Students/trainees that are funded by either National Science Foundation (NSF) or select National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants are required to:
-Take and pass the Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) course with an 80% or higher for each individual module.
Please note that CITI will tell you that you are passing with 80% but you will not pass unless you have an 80% or higher on each individual module.
