Certified TRaC Representative

CPRTRaC Representative Certification is designed for those individuals who are their department's TRaC Representative or the back-up TRaC Representative and who are interested in advancing their professional growth and development. Comprehensive training will teach specific skills and techniques, improve job performance, minimize mistakes, bolster compliance measures, and provide a credential recognized and respected within the Duke community.

Certified employees will exit the program with enhanced skills as outlined in detail in the Outcomes Outlines. Managers throughout Duke are encouraged to use their employee-participants in value-added roles by:
  • Delegating additional work and responsibilities to the participant
  • Supporting employee growth and development from certification
  • Seeking new hires who have completed certification
