Access to CITI training:  The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) – Canada Education Program 
N2 has partnered with the CITI program at the University of Miami.  N2 has the rights to add and modify all CITI-content to ensure it reflects and meets the educational needs of the Canadian research environment.
 
The CITI-Canada Program offers comprehensive courses on a variety of research related matters.  The courses include a quiz after each module to test the learner’s knowledge. Following successful completion of the course, the learner is able to obtain a completion certificate. This can be used to demonstrate compliance with the regulatory requirements for education in the respective topics. The organization will be able to run aggregate reports on all staff in its organization to track completion of the respective courses.
 
N2 provides access to the CITI-Canada program for N2 member organizations.  Please contact Camille Viray at Camille.viray@fraserhealth.ca , our Research and Education Coordinator, if you are interested in accessing this program.
