Helpful Information

  1. GCP Course for Clinical Trials Involving Behavioral or non-FDA regulated research:
    When completeting this course you may notice the term "refresher" as seen below.

    Even though the course's modules and certificate indicate "refresher", the course is the basic course required for training.
  2. Completion Reports:
    CITI Training completion reports are transferred nightly to Pitt servers @ 2:00am. Users who have completed courses will automatically be granted access to OSIRIS and ARO by 8:00am. If completed after 2:00am, access will not be granted for another day.
  3. Browser Issue:
    Users may experience some problems when using Internet Explorer version 9 with this CITI's platform. Until a fix can be provided, we are recommending users work in a different version of Internet Explorer or browser (e.g., Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari).
  4. Transferring Credits:
    CITI Training courses can be transferred but only if completed within the past 2 years and were not refresher courses. Please review the Instruction Sheet displayed before beginning the process. It is important to remember that users must select their Pitt curriculum and start the courses before the modules accepted are displayed as passed. In addition, Pitt requires, at a minimum, one additional module be completed for each course.
