Printing Your CITI Certificate

1.  Click the "Log in to CITI MIAMI" button above and log in with your NetID and password.
2.  Scroll down to the "My Courses" header under the "Medical University of South Carolina" header.
3.  Under "Completion Reports," click "Print."

Getting Started

All users, whether first time or previously registered, will access CITI MIAMI by using their current MUSC-issued NetID and password. When the "Log in to CITI MIAMI" link above (http://www.musc.edu/cgi-bin/citi/login.cgi) is selected, a gray box will open up asking for a NetID and password. Once credentials have been entered, users will be directed to the CITI MIAMI main homepage. 

For Non-MUSC users wishing to take the training, they will need to complete the OCIO Non-MUSC application for a NetID. This procedure requires the Non-MUSC individual to be sponsored by an MUSC employee. The sponsor will need to contact the appropriate “registration authority” (Registration authorities: http://www.musc.edu/infoservices/idam/contacts.html) to provision and deliver the NetID.

MUSC and CITI MIAMI have worked diligently to match current users with their NetIDs allowing instant access to their old records. Every effort was made to match current CITI users with their NetIDs. If you experience any issues or have any questions, please contact the following:
