  3. Select a username and password and verify password.
  4. Enter Name and Email address; click “Submit.”
  5. Complete Member Information, click “Submit.”
  6. Select Groups: Choose “Yes,” if this is the first time you have used the CITI Program, and choose your learner group. Do not choose from any of the other boxes in section 1, as YOUR FACILITY is not on those lists.
