iRIS Training

Open Lab Hours: On a trial basis, the IRB will be hosting open lab hours for anyone needing training in the iRIS system and general help with their IRB submission. The lab will be hosted by 2-3 IRB staff members. There will be a first come first serve sign-up at the lab. See the original announcement for more info.

In-Person Training: The IRB offers hands-on training in a computer lab setting. These classes are directed toward investigators, study contacts and others who prepare and maintain IRB submission. Participants will learn and practice common tasks related to submitting and managing studies in the iRIS system.

We offer two classes – iRIS Intro Class and iRIS Advanced Class: Managing Approved Studies. We strongly suggest that you attend the intro class before attending the advanced class.

Attendance is limited, and you must register in order to attend. If you register and can no longer attend, please contact us.

Group Training: We also encourage departments or groups to organize a time for us to visit and provide you with either a) a demo of the iRIS system or b) a demo and hands-on training. Please fill out a Group Training Request Form if you wish to organize this type of training for a group of 4 or more individuals.

You will be responsible for arranging the meeting room and some IT resources for the training. Submit only one request per group. We will finalize the date and time with you after we schedule an available trainer. If you have questions, please contact us.
