FAQ: Research Training Requirements

Anyone conducting research at the University of Pittsburgh is required to complete training prior to beginning the project, regardless of funding source. Training requirements vary based on the nature of the research. While there are obvious differences in training requirements for those performing animal subject research and human subject research, there are requirements that may be applicable to all research. Detailed information on training requirements is available on the Office of Research Protections website at https://www.orp.pitt.edu/ under Training Courses.
