Yes, you may hear this referred to as "the CITI course." That's because it's offered by the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI), a non-profit training organization. "Working with the IACUC" is one of a number of courses the University subscribes to.
Texas State uses the CITI program for training but we can accept proof of current (within 2 years) training from a comparable source or from another institution, as long as it meets the requirements set forth in the federal regulation. If you have proof of training (CITI or other) from another institution, send it to Becky Northcut in RIC
The basic course of training on use of animal subjects and working with the IACUC is required of all personnel every 5 years. In the case of a change in regulations or some other event that substantively impacts research with animals, researchers may be required to take an update sooner.
That depends on whether the training is related to one of your classes or academic projects, or if you are taking it because you are involved in wildlife research that requires an approval by the IACUC. If you are required to take it, your supervising faculty member, the IACUC chair, or the RIC will contact you.
That depends on whether the training is related to one of your agriculture classes, participation in the CDE or other similar event, or your involvement in agriculture research requiring IACUC approval. If you are required to take it, your supervising faculty member, the IACUC chair, or the RIC will contact you.
