Information to help you with registering and completing the courses, refresher courses, CITI training from other institutions, and additional contact information.
You must complete all required modules in the following three courses in CITI:
If you forget your user name or password, follow the "Forgot login information" instructions on the CITI website.
You must score a minimum of 80% on each quiz in order to pass, and move on to the next quiz. You may repeat a quiz as many times as it takes in order to achieve a passing score.
After you finish all the required modules in a course, CITI will issue a completion report that is available to print from the main menu after you log in to CITI. CITI training certificates will be directly submitted to EIRH via the CITI program.
You are required to renew your CITI training every three years by taking the relevant refresher course(s).
After you log into the CITI site, the refresher course will appear in your grade book (e.g. the “My Courses” section). Click "Enter" to begin.
This training may be valid at Essentia Health. To see if courses are eligible for transfer, log on to the CITI site and add Essentia Institute of Rural Health as an affiliate institution.
CITI will review the modules you previously completed and the date(s) on which you took them. CITI will ask you to complete any modules required by Essentia Health that were not required by your previous institution and/or modules that are no longer eligible to be transferred.
