Online RCR training is completed in the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI), an online provider of research ethics, compliance, and professional development education. 

Anyone with SSO TrainTraq access should login to TrainTraq and start the online RCR course. For Texas A&M University, the TrainTraq course number is 2113357.  Other members, including TEES and Agrilife Research, have equivalent TrainTraq courses for CITI RCR training. The TrainTraq course will provide further information about RCR training and then redirect to the CITI site for completion of the RCR training.
