Please use the link below if you need to access your NIH training certificate. Note that investigators who have existing NIH certification can retain that valid certification for five years from the date of completion-as long as the date of completion is prior to August 1, 2017. Once expired, investigators will need to become certified through the CITI program.
2. Determination of Risk/Review Status
There are three levels of IRB review: Exempt, Expedited, and Full Board Review.
Research does not qualify for exempt or expedited level review, presents more than minimal risk to subjects, and/or involve vulnerable populations, as defined in the Common Rule.
Research falls into any of nine regulated categories. Involves collection of samples and data in a manner that is not anonymous and that involves no more than minimal risk to subjects.
Research falls into any of six categories delineated in the federal regulations. Risk is minimized through anonymity of responses or through the use of non-invasive paradigms that will not harm subjects.
