Institutional Biosafety Committee
 

Training 

During the protocol approval process, the IBC will determine which training modules will require completion to comply with IBC policy. After review of a submitted protocol, the IBC will advise the PI which training modules are required. Final approval of a submitted protocol will be contingent upon satisfactory completion of training. Skidmore maintains a subscription to Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program to assist in achieving training compliance.

Please click on Instructions for Accessing CITI Training Modules in order to register in CITI and complete the required training modules indicated on the pending, submitted protocol. Once all required and supplemental courses have satisfactorily been completed, the IBC will issue final protocol approval.
