When would I check an investigator's course completion record in Saba?

This FAQ has been developed to assist the HRPP staff with the Saba training system and describe HRPP staff administrative use of the Saba training system.  To view FAQs for researchers, click here.

There are several reasons you may want to check an investigator's course completion record in the Saba training system:

To Determine if Individual Registered for Course but not Certification

If an individual completed a human research protection course but did not register for the Human Research Protection (HRPP/IRB) Certification, the MSU IRB online system will show that the individual did not complete the required IRB training; the completion status of the Human Research Protection (HRPP/IRB) Certification is the training data that is sent from the Saba training system to the MSU IRB online system. You will want to search for the individual in the Saba training system and if they did not register for the Human Research Protection (HRPP/IRB) Certification, you will then want to assign the certification to them. If they have already completed a human research protection course, the certification should display "Acquired" and then during the next daily update between the Saba training system and the MSU IRB online system, the MSU IRB online system will then be updated to show that required IRB training has been completed.

To Determine which Human Research Protection Course was Completed

If you want to view which human research protection course an individual completed, you would access the investigator course completion records. For example, you may want to learn whether the individual completed the MSU human research protection training modules or whether alternate training had been accepted.

To View Legacy IRB Training Records

If you need to view previous MSU IRB training data (e.g. records of IRB training completed prior to implementation of the Saba training system), you would view the course completion record. For example, the Saba training system will display records for completion of the MSU IRB Tutorial and the CITI renewal requirements.
