CITI training information

CITI Training

CITI programs provide education and testing around topics involving research such as research integrity and export controls.  Personnel engaged in work governed by a Technology Control Plan (TCP) are required to complete export control training in CITI.

Registering for CITI training only takes a few minutes.  You can take the course at your own pace using interactive activities and online resources. After taking the test, download the completion certificate.  If you do not pass the first time, repeat the course until a passing score is achieved.
