The training program has been updated and some of its processes have changed. For instance, after attending courses you will now receive completion certificates by email. Most CIT classes are free of charge to NIH staff. While NIH employees get first priority, contractors are welcome to attend when space is available, the class is related to their NIH work and they have approval from their NIH supervisor.
