FasTracks are open enrollment and feature focused training on specific areas of grant management. They are designed to provide training to the entire grant management community on emerging issues in research administration. Topics include a broad spectrum of material – from federal policy changes to new Duke forms and processes.
FasTracks are designed to be short-term offerings, and after an initial training push, the FasTrack material will be integrated into the standard RCC training classes.
Beginning in FY15, some FasTracks may be required to receive continuing education. These courses will be noted in the course description in the Duke LMS. More information about required FasTracks is forthcoming.
