Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) has been directed by the Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Biological and Environmental Research to implement the CITI Web-based training program in order to maintain compliance with DOE Order 443.1, Protection of Human Subjects. All IRB members, IRB staff, and all Principal Investigators (PI) at ORAU are required to complete the training. 

Alternate training programs may be acceptable in lieu of the CITI program if approved by the Chair.  In addition, time is allocated on the agenda during each meeting for member education and to address current issues and pending changes in regulations.
