Community Partner Training is an online training program for community members who are engaged in human subjects research. This training program was adapted for Penn in 2016, from CIRTification, created by Emily Anderson, PhD at the University of Illinois at Chicago Center for Clinical and Translational Science.
The Community Partner Training program was developed by the Community Engagement and Research (CEAR) Core of the UPenn Clinical and Translational Science Awards (ITMAT) with input by the UPenn Office of Regulatory Affairs, Human Research Protections (the IRB office). The course was designed to train community members with limited research experience on the background and principles of conducting human subjects research.
The Community Partner Training has moved to the platform. The CEAR Core team has partnered with Penn Libraries to bring community research partners a free, accessible, and fully supported training program on Canvas.
Over 230 people have completed the training since its launch. The course is user-friendly and accessible within the Canvas platform.
