CITI Training Instructions


  • Select your organization affiliation by typing "University of Toledo" in the provided box, and check the two boxes if you agree.

  • Click "Continue to create your CITI program username/password"


  • I can't show examples of the rest because I already have an account, but continue through the registration, creating your username and password. 

  • Once you're registered, you should be able to see the courses available to you. Click "View Courses" next to University of Toledo.


  • Under "Learner Tools for University of Toledo" toward the bottom of the page, select "Add a Course."


  • The walkthrough changes semi-regularly, so the numbered questions you see below might not be the same. 

  • When prompted, select "Yes I conduct research with live human beings, human samples, or with data derived from human beings."


  • Select "Social-Educational-Behavioral Researchers and Students"


  • Select "Not at this time" if prompted to complete institutional/signatory official training.


  • You should be automatically routed back to your University of Toledo courses page. Your page will look a little different than the one shown below. You should see "Social-Behavioral-Educational Researchers and Students" under "Courses Ready to Begin." Be sure that it says "Basic Course" and not "Refresher Course" (example below). 


  • Click "Start Now" and complete the training. 

  • When you are done, send me the training certificate generated at the end.

    • Please name the file "LastName_CITI Certificate."

Your human subjects training should be complete!

If you also need to complete the Responsible Conduct of Research or Good Clinical Practice training, check out the linked guides.
