Education and Training
The Institutional Review Board offices offer classroom instruction on the basics of using the eResearch Regulatory Management (eRRM) system to create and submit human research subject applications, and more.
Program for Education and Evaluation in Responsible Research and Scholarship (PEERRS) is a foundational instruction and certification program for faculty and staff engaged in or associated with research at the University of Michigan.
- Investigators, Co-Investigators, Faculty Advisors and Study Coordinators/Project Managers are required to complete the PEERRS Human Subjects training course for a study application to be approved. Research Staff must also complete the course, but the IRB may not require this in order to issue final approval of the application.
- eRRM displays the status of your PEERRS certification in the study application.
- Allow up to 48 hours for PEERRS information to appear in eRRM if you recently completed your certification or were added as a new user to eRRM.
- Non-UM collaborators listed as study team members on a research project initiated at U-M must demonstrate completion of human subjects training. Non-UM collaborators may use the Guest Access Request to apply to take U-M's training, or may submit a waiver from their institutional training to U-M for credit.
