In addition to completing an online CITI RCR course, NSF and NIH funded undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers who are covered by the RCR Compliance Policy must successfully complete in-person* training.

The amount of the training varies by career stage for those who are funded by covered NSF grants. Students and postdocs who are funded by covered NIH grants must complete at least 8 hours of in-person* RCR training.

The in-person* RCR training must be completed within the first year of the appointment to the project or before the applicable person graduates or otherwise leaves the Institute even if that imposes a shorter deadline.
