Consultation Request for User Training: New and Refresher

Training is required for all new users and all new employees of study teams who will be engaged in WIRB regulatory processes. 

Please fill out the Consultation & Group Presentation Request to schedule the required training.

In an effort to provide research teams the ability to plan more efficiently, we are now offering group training with set calendar dates and times.  These training sessions are open to current employees that need a refresher, and new employees to meet new submitter UW-Madison training requirements.  Phase I to Phase IV UW and WIRB requirements will be covered to help provide the knowledge necessary to build a quality application for submission.  All training sessions will be held in the UW HS IRB's Conference Room located at 800 University Bay Drive, Suite #105.  Registration is required due to limited available seating.
