USC Training Requirements

  • Human Subjects Training taken through the CITI (Collaborative IRB Training Initiative) program is mandatory for all personnel conducting human subjects research. Confirmation of educational certification for all personnel listed in section in 2.1 will be required prior to the approval of research projects submitted to the IRB. Please see the current information regarding CITI training at USC on the OPRS (Office for the Protection of Research Subjects) website.
  • Good Clinical Practice (GCP) is also taken through the CITI (Collaborative IRB Training Initiative) program; it is mandatory for all personnel conducting research that the IRB has determined to meet the NIH definition of a clinical trial. Per NIH, a clinical trial is “A research study in which one or more human subjects are prospectively assigned to one or more interventions (which may include placebo or other control) to evaluate the effects of those interventions on health-related biomedical or behavioral outcomes.” Confirmation of educational certification for all personnel listed in section in 2.1 will be required prior to the approval of research projects submitted to the IRB. For more information about GCP training requirements at USC, please visit the OPRS website.
  • You can complete CITI training before obtaining an iStar account. The CITI and iStar systems operate independently of one another. Any CITI questions, please contact the USC CITI Help Desk at (213) 821-2074 or email citi@usc.edu.
  • HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) training is a requirement for all faculty, USC/staff employees, students, volunteers, agents, and other certain individuals who have access to patient health information (PHI). This course can be taken online through the USC Office of Compliance website. For more information about HIPAA requirements at USC, please visit the OPRS HIPAA page.

If you have already completed any of the training referenced above and need it to be added to your iStar account, you can attach the certificates in a PDF format and send it via email to istar@usc.edu. In the subject line, please indicate that you want the certificates added to iStar profile.

CHLA Instructions

In order to comply with CHLA data security requirements and to ensure secure access to iStar, CHLA users will need to login with their CHLA Okta or USC Shibboleth ID. CHLA users who login with an iStar account ID will be directed to a page to login with a CHLA Okta or USC Shibboleth ID. Below is information for activating a CHLA Okta ID.

  • Click here to enroll on your phone.
  • You can also log into Okta. In the job aids, there are steps to authenticate and/or activate it on a computer or phone.

Who Needs an OKTA ID to access iStar?

  • All employees with CHLA email addresses need to use their Okta ID.
  • Non-CHLA study team members do not need an iStar account. The CHLA HSPP office will no longer create iStar accounts for non-CHLA users, unless there is a specific requirement to have access to the iStar system. Such requests may be emailed to hspp@chla.usc.edu.
