Texas Tech University

Human Subject Training

The Human Research Protection Program offers an Institutional Review Board Training for graduate students and faculty members who conduct human subject research. The training takes place over five weeks. Researchers who attend all five sessions will receive a Certificate of Completion for Texas Tech University Human Subject Training.

Researchers submitting to federal grants are still required to have human subject training through CITI.

The training includes:

  • Introduction to the IRB
  • Navigating Cayuse IRB
  • Data Collection and Privacy, Confidentiality & Security
  • Recruitment and Consent Procedures
  • After IRB Approval & Q&A

Face-to-face and online sections are offered for each training. If you are on the Lubbock campus we encourage you to attend the face-to-face sessions.  Distant students will have first priority for the online sections.
