Resources for Principal Investigators

Before you begin any work with rDNA, you must submit a registration form to the IBC. If the chair determines that a full application is required, investigators must also complete this training module and deliver a certificate of completion to the IBC.


      1. Go to the CITI training site.
      2. Create an account, if you're not already registered with CITI, and log in. Once you’re logged in, you’ll see a list of Middlebury courses.
      3. If the biosafety courses are not shown in your list, click on Add a Course or Update Learner Groups under My Learner Tools for Middlebury College.
      4. On the next page, check Yes, I need/want to take the course on Biosafety and click the big blue Next button. The course list should now contain two courses: one for IBC members and one for student and faculty PIs.
      5. Click on the course for student and faculty PIs and complete the modules at your convenience.
