Who needs human subjects protection training?
Education on the protection of human subjects is required for any individual who will be involved in the conduct of NIH-supported human subjects research. OER has provided a Frequently Asked Questions document to help you determine whether this requirement applies to you and your co-investigators.
Your budget office must submit documentation that all personnel involved in the human subjects research have completed research training before ANY subjects can be enrolled in your study (and before your grant will be funded). Many institutions have a training program for research personnel conducting research at their institution. The NIH also provides a tutorial that satisfies this requirement called Protecting Human Research Participants . Upon course completion, a certificate can be printed for inclusion in your grant file.
