NIH Online Certification Training
Under Federal law and in compliance with Siena College’s Federalwide Assurance (FWA), anyone engaged in human subject research is required to complete the appropriate training on the protections of human subjects. To fulfill this federal mandate, the IRB accepts the NIH Office of Extramural Research, Protecting Human Research Participants training modules or CITI Protection of Human Subjects Curriculum.
