RCR Training
Training on Research Ethics

All NSU researchers are urged to avail themselves of an online training opportunity in research ethics and to provide OR-NSU with copy of completion certificates when issued as part of your own certification of continuing education in responsible conduct of research.

Global Health Training Centre (GHTC)

This online training is available without charge from the Global Health Training Centre. Users must create an individual account with userid and password. From the website: "Research Ethics Online Training is adapted from an e-Learning course and resource package designed and produced by the World Health Organization (WHO) for use by internal staff. Research is a vital ingredient for improved global health and scientifically sound and ethically appropriate research is especially important in resource-poor settings where the need for locally applicable research findings is so great. Therefore the WHO has very kindly granted permission for the adaption of this resource in a format and platform that is accessible to all."

"A certificate will be issued on successful completion of all fourteen quiz sections (minimum of 80% required)."

Training and Resources in Research Ethics Evaluation (TRREE)

As an alternative to the short and/or modular courses offered by GHTC, you have the option of completing three modules (1 [Introduction to Research Ethics], 2.1 [Research Ethics Evaluation], and 3.1 [Informed Consent]) offered free of charge by Training and Resources in Research Ethics Education. You will need to create an account and then you can log in at your convenience to complete these three modules. A passing score will yield a certificate that can be submitted to OR-NSU.
