Training Requirements - Department of Defense (DoD) Requirements

Initial and refresher training courses are required as described by the research sponsor, when the research is funded by the Department of Defense (DoD) or a component (e.g., Navy, Army, Air Force).

  • Department of Navy (DON)
    Completion of the CITI Training Module for "DON-Supported Extramural Performers" is required for those described in the DON guidance. Extramural performers are to complete this initial training and are encouraged to complete a "refresher" course every three years.
  • Other military branches (e.g. Army, Air Force)
    Researchers should contact the program officer for specific information about their respective education requirements and obtain documentation confirming the requirements.
  • Under Secretary of Defense (Personnel and Readiness)
    Research under the purview of the Under Secretary of Defense (Personnel and Readiness) requires annual training on the protection of human research subjects for all investigators and research staff directly involved in human subjects research. This office has purview over such areas as National Guard and Reserve component affairs; health affairs; training; and personnel requirements and management. More information about this office is available at http://prhome.defense.gov/.

Documentation of training completion is the certificate received from CITI once you have completed the course.
