In-Person Training

Infographic: Over 250 researchers nationwide are using CIRTification to train community partners on human subject protection

In-person CIRTification was developed for a variety of facilitators and can be tailored to meet your specific needs. These may include:

  • Research ethics or responsible conduct of research (RCR) educators, who may not have expertise in community-engaged research
  • Principal investigators of community-engaged research projects, who may not have experience teaching RCR or research ethics
  • Experienced community research partners
  • Trainers with a variety of backgrounds

The background reading materials provided in the curriculum should be sufficient for supporting the implementation of all activities and lectures. Resources that can provide more in-depth information are referenced throughout the manual.

Following the recommended 3-hour lesson plan format ensures fidelity to the curriculum learning objectives. The content is comparable to that covered in standard training programs.
