Georgia Tech requires all undergraduate students and Tech Temps paid on a RCR flagged project to be trained in the principles of Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR). This training must be completed in two phases, via completion of online CITI modules within 90 days of starting at Georgia Tech, and via “in-person training” in the first 12 months of employment.   (The second phase is not required for an undergrad or temp that is not being paid on an RCR flagged project.)

Phase 1:  Complete the online CITI modules within 90 days of starting at Georgia Tech as a graduate student

Please note:

  • Make sure to print and maintain a copy of your completion certificate in the event your name does not appear in the Institute’s CITI report. 
  • The CITI course that satisfies the online RCR training requirement IS NOT the same as the CITI courses that researchers take to satisfy the online training requirements of GT’s IACUC (vertebrae animal subjects research) or GT’s IRB (human subjects research)

Phase 2:  Complete the in-person training via In-Person Certification form.

  • An In-Person Certification form must be completed, with signatures from both the employee and advisor.  Then emailed to
