IREC acknowledges that the foundation for effective implementation of all facets of ILRI human research ethics and for efforts to promote compliance lies in a comprehensive and mandatory education program for all its members. It is therefore the policy of IREC that all its members complete initial and ongoing trainings as necessary.
All IREC members are required to complete relevant modules being offered by Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI). This is an internet - based course in human research protection and bioethics and is designed specifically for all personnel that have a significant involvement in planning, conduct and analysis of any scientific activity that employs human research participants. Research personnel are also encouraged to undertake the same modules
