SIRB Training Now Available

February 22nd, 2017

The online version of the Single IRB (SIRB) training module is now available via the RATS Program.  To complete the SIRB training online, log in to your account at https://education.research.utah.edu/ and follow these instructions:

  1. Go to RATS Online Classes using the Main menu.
  2. Click the Access Your Online Classes button. 
  3. Click on the Single IRB Model link in the RATS/Institutional Review Board (IRB) Online Classes section.  
  4. Click the Enroll Me button.  

Upon completion of all units in the SIRB training module, please provide a copy of your completion certificate to irb@hsc.utah.edu.

As a reminder, effective February 1, 2017, the University of Utah Human Research Protection Program requires investigators and staff performing research under a SIRB model to complete SIRB training before the research can be activated at the University of Utah.

This is a one-time training requirement and does not require recertification. SIRB training does not replace the standard human subject research or GCP trainings required by the IRB.

Please contact the IRB with questions at 801-581-3655 or irb@hsc.utah.edu
