Can the training be done remotely?

Yes. The training is web based with certificate access, and can be done on any computer on which the investigator/key person has a personal MIT certificate installed.

Do PI’s need to know the proposal number in order to access certification or COI?

The notification email link will bring them directly to the correct screen in Kuali Coeus for certification. At the end of the Certification questions, they will be prompted with a link to the COI site if a full COI is required. If they leave the COI module and have to reenter, they can go in again through “MyCOI” where they choose from a list. The PI would then need to know which one to choose.
