REGARDLESS of funding agency requirements, the Furman IRB requires that ALL Furman researchers involved in “human subjects” research must complete the required learning modules from the online NIH training program.
The IRB will not process an application until the NIH program has been completed by the P.I., Faculty Advisor, and Chair or Administrative Division Head.  You should print out and save a copy of your completion certificate to be submitted with your application and kept for your own files.

The NIH program consists of seven modules, four of which are followed by quizzes. The Main Menu lists each module of the program. To begin a module, click on the title in the Main Menu list. While you can choose the modules in any order, it is recommended that you start at the top and work your way down.

To complete a module, read through all pages, clicking onto the "next" link located at the top of the page to continue through each, and continue on through to the end. Clicking through the last page will return you back to the Main Menu and record you having completed that module. Your progress is only recorded when you complete a module and see a check mark next to that module on the Main Menu page.

To the right of the Main Menu, there are user options. Some options, such as “Get Certificate” will not be available until you have completed all modules and quizzes.

While you can access the Main Menu at any time, your progress through this course is being tracked and is recorded only when you COMPLETE a module. If you must leave the course prior to completion, it is advised that you first complete the module in which you are working.

If you have a question about this training, please call (x. 3468) or email Brianne Pochard.
