Institutional Biosafety CITI Training Course
James Madison University has implemented the use of the new CITI Biosafety/Biosecurity training course for anyone conducting research involving bio-hazardous material, including Infectious Biological Agents, Recombinant DNA and Select Agents. The goal of providing the CITI Biosafety modules is to improve a person's knowledge of biosafety, provide training to University staff, students, PI's and lab personnel, and to ensure regulatory compliance.
All Principal Investigators, Co-Investigators, Laboratory Technicians, and Research Staff involved in research using bio-hazardous material in their laboratories are recommended to complete the CITI Basic Biosafety Training course. "Research Staff" refers to anyone, including students of any kind, conducting research on or otherwise handling bio-hazardous material, including Infectious Biological Agents, Recombinant DNA, and Select Agents. The overall goal in subscribing to the Biosafety modules is to provide a tool to help train your research staff. As you review the CITI modules it will become apparent which modules are helpful and in some cases, essential to your research needs.
