HRPP modules on the LMS website
When you leave the LMS site (even for a few minutes) you need to log off.
Not logging off can cause server problems and prevent you from completing your courses.
Please read the notice below from the CITI Technical Staff regarding the use of browsers for the CITI site.
Web Browser Compatibility
The current version of the CITI Program’s website was launched in August 2013.
In the coming months, we will be adding several usability enhancements and new features.
To make full use of these enhancement and features, and to do so securely, it’s important for your
organization’s learners and administrators to use a current browser version when accessing CITI Program.
The vast majority of browsers made available within the last 3-4 years will support all CITI Program features.
Older versions may not, as they are often less secure and provide less functionality.
We currently offer full support for four browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari,
since these constitute 99 percent of CITI Program traffic.
Note that effective March 2015, CITI Program's website will block use of Internet Explorer version 7,
which is now more than 8 years old, as it does earlier versions of IE. Site users will need to
have IE 8 or later, or use a current version of Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
Do not forget to:
Complete your HRPP education.
Use the most current forms found on SHIELDS in the IRB Library or on HRPP website.

Click "SUBMIT" on SHIELDS when submitting a project.
