Human Research Ethics Training

The TCPS 2 Tutorial Course on Research Ethics (CORE)

CORE provides an applied approach to the guidance provided in Tri-council Policy Statement: Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans (2010). This self-paced course is a media-rich learning experience that features interactive exercises and multi-disciplinary examples. CORE consists of eight modules ranging from Core Principles to REB Review. It is designed primarily for the use of researchers and REB members – though anyone may take this course and print their own certificate of completion.
