About the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Programme

The CITI training is a web-based training program that provides research ethics education to the research community on human research subjects’ protection. It is now available to all SUTD staff and students and can be accessed online via www.citiprogram.org.

All SUTD researchers who submit a new application to SUTD-IRB need to have CITI certification. The SUTD-IRB decided its move on 6 June 2014 to implement mandatory CITI certification with effect from 1 August 2014. All the Principal Investigator and Co-Investigator(s) named in the Application Form need to attach their CITI Program Completion Report while submitting the Application Package to SUTD-IRB for approval.

For registration, kindly refer to: CITI Program New Learner Account Registration. To proceed with your training, please click on this link. SUTD researchers should register using their SUTD email accounts.
