(1) The online training (a CITI RCR course) must be successfully completed within ninety [90] days of being appointed to a covered project or before the applicable person graduates or otherwise leaves the Institute even if that imposes a shorter deadline.

(2) The “in-person” RCR training requirement must be completed within the first year of being appointed to a covered project or before the applicable person graduates or otherwise leaves the Institute even if that imposes a shorter deadline.

(3) Applicable doctoral students who began their graduate program prior to Fall 2011 should check with OSP if they need to discuss other options for satisfying the in-person training requirement.
