PEERRS training provides information about responsible conduct of research. It is not to be confused with required training on Good Clinical Practice, which is an additional requirement for people involved in clinical trials. 

If you are required to have PEERRS training, it must be completed before institutional review board approval can be granted for your project. If you are unsure whether you are required to take PEERRS training, check out this resource.


The Program for Education and Evaluation in Responsible Research and Scholarship (PEERRS)
PEERRS certification may be required for participation on a study or project team, depending on your role (e.g., principal investigator), the funding source (e.g., NSF), and/or the type of research (e.g., human subjects where PEERRS training is required for every study team member).
