Request a PEERRS Human Subjects Certification Waiver

Waiver Requirements

U-M personnel or external research collaborators may request a waiver of PEERRS human subjects protections training with the submission of proof for equivalent training (e.g., completion certificate) completed within the past three (3) years.  The U-M PEERRS group takes reasonable action to verify that the training cited in the waiver request is equivalent in topic/content of the PEERRS training.  

What are the commonly accepted training equivalents?

Other institutional training may qualify for a training waiver.  However, U-M does not accept Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) or Good Clinical Practice (GCP) courses as equivalents for human subjects protection training.

Documentation Requirements

For CITI training, submit a copy of the CITI training certification report that lists the course modules completed and the completion dates of each.
