Programs Eligible for CIP Recertification Credit

CIP logo

For recertification by continuing education (CE), CIPs must complete 30 documented hours of continuing education on topics within the CIP Body of Knowledge (Content Outline) which can be found in the CIP Handbook. These topics must also be beyond initial, basic or fundamental level education programs (e.g., no IRB 101sm or similar topics).

Beginning in 2015, at least 15 of the 30 hours must either:

  • Carry credits issued by a recognized accrediting body (e.g., nursing associations, the American Council on Pharmaceutical Education (ACPE), Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and other professional organizations or universities); OR
  • Have received advance recognition from the Council for Certification of IRB Professionals (CCIP), such as PRIM&R’s annual conferences and webinars, AAHRPP’s annual conference, and Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) sponsored programs on topics beyond basic or initial level of knowledge.

Please refer to the CIP recertification guidelines for additional information.

Eligible PRIM&R Educational programs

Research Ethics Digest Self-Study Program

The Research Ethics Digest Self-Study Program allows PRIM&R members to earn CE credit hours by reading selected articles and successfully completing an online quiz.

More information on the program can be found here.
