STEP 1: PI Receives Training Online & Retains Certificate
Principal investigators and student investigators are required to undergo online training and obtain certification in conducting research involving human subjects. Please note: The training must be renewed every 3 years.
The National Cancer Institute offers a free, web-based course, which presents information about the rights and welfare of human participants in research. The two-hour tutorial is designed for those involved in conducting research involving human participants. It satisfies the NIH human subjects training requirement for obtaining federal funds. On March 1, 2008, the NIH Office of Extramural Research on-line tutorial Protecting Human Research Particpants (PHRP) replaced the NCI Human Participant Protections Education for Research Teams course. The NCI course is no longer available. The PHRP course replaces the old course and covers the same material. The PHRP course satisfies all the requirements of the old course.
