Current Training Opportunities
The LMS and finding courses:
Training administered by the Office of Education for Research Adminsitraiton and Finance (OERAF) in support of Duke University research administrators can be found in the Duke Learning Management System (LMS). Registration for all classes is in the Duke LMS. The links below will take you to the LMS registration page for each course.
Training on using the LMS is found online.
LMS Tip: if you would like to search for a course in the LMS that counts for Duke RCC Continuing Education Credit hours, you can use the advanced search function in the LMS catalog to search by either of the following fields:
- Field of Study: search for "Duke RCC Cont Ed Credits"
- Category: Search for "Research Administration"
You can also check the "Associated Learning" tab within a course to see if "Duke RCC Cont Ed Credits" are listed under the Continuing Education section.
For all RAA, AGM, RAI, FCC certified employees:
Those with a certification must earn 12 continuing education credits for FY22 throughout the fiscal year (7/1 – 6/30) to maintain certification.
(The intended audience for these courses includes those who are new to research administration or new to the pre-award or post-award functions of research administration.)
- QuickStart in Research Administration (does not qualify for continuing education credit)
Continuing Education Classes
Descriptions of CE Categories are available on the Continuing Education website.
Note: this is not an exhaustive list of classes - any one-off classes that will count toward Continuing Education Credit hours will be announced via the Grant Management Community Listserv.
Management Center Updates/Research Administration Community Town Halls:
Management center updates provided by ORA or CRAM and town halls for the entire research administration community will be offered throughout the year. Management center-specific (MNMC or Campus) updates can count as not more than 25% of the annual CE requirement. Research Administration Communication town halls fall into the Duke-specific compliance, systems, and business process training category so there is no limit on CE hours that can be counted during the year.
Details on these types of meetings are communicated through the management center-specific list serves and the grant management community list serve. To be added to the grant management community list service, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Facilitated discussions of viewed webinars offered by professional organizations will be eligible for CE. Topics and the number of CE hours will vary based on the webinar. CE hours will include time spent viewing the webinar and time spent in facilitated discussion. Opportunities will be listed below as they become available.
- National Conference on College Cost Accounting (NACCA)
- National Organization of Research Development Professionals (NORDP)
Note: these are not all the organizations whose conference attendance may count toward CE credit. Contact OERAF if you have attended a Research Administration-related conference and would like for it to count toward your non-Duke continuing education allowable CE hours (no more than 50% of credit annually).
