Optional Zoom Trainings

For all University colleges and locations

The optional trainings in this section are intended to help researchers prepare to submit their studies to the appropriate research compliance program, such as the IRB or IACUC.  We also offer more in-depth training on specific topics.  Please note: If a training offers SARI credit, it will be noted in the training description in the sign-up form.  Please see the Education Workshops and Events page for more educational offerings.  These trainings are applicable to researchers across the University, including Penn State Health and the College of Medicine.


Required Training

Most research compliance programs have required training that must be completed prior to engaging in activities related to that particular oversight area. Information about required training can be found on the program links below. Many of the required trainings are in CITI. Use the CITI decision-making tool to determine which training is required for your activity.
