To obtain the most benefit from the RCR workshops, students should complete CITI online training prior to attending RCR workshops. Please note that CITI training need be completed only once and covers general RCR education. In conjunction with CITI training, FAU’s RCR workshops offer more specific instruction and satisfy NSF and NIH requirements.
