    1. It is not entirely clear what you are looking for. If it is a course certificate for Protecting Human Research participants course, unfortunately, NIH no longer offers its Protecting Human Research Participants course and we do not plan not plan to provide an alternative course (see announcement https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-18-221.html).

      Institutions seeking to fulfill the requirement (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-00-039.html) for education in the protection of human research will need to use another training program or develop a program to meet the requirement. NIH does not specify or endorse any specific educational programs.

  1. For the course “Introduction to the Principles and Practice of Clinical Research”, it says above that “Both the course and registration for the 2018-2019 course year are now open through June 30, 2019.”, but when I got to the IPPCR website, it says that the registration is closed. Appreciate your response.

    1. The NIH Office of Clinical Research is making some improvements to their technical system to prepare for the upcoming course year, and with the course registration closing in under 2 weeks, they decided to close it a little early to allow for these changes. If you have any other questions or concerns please contact ippcr2@mail.nih.gov.

  2. Hi! When I try to access the page, it says “Access Denied”. I already completed all the sign-up requirements.
