In order to conduct research safely and in compliance with regulatory requirements, there are many trainings that need to be completed by faculty and researchers prior to and during the conduct of the research. Further, staff who process proposals, administer grant awards and negotiate contracts and other research-related agreements in support of this research also need to complete required training. Please see below for a list of the required trainings for either Faculty and Researchers or Staff.
Starting December 2017 anyone with active research training in our systems will receive an email that (a) lists research trainings and (b) when they expire. This is a courtesy transcript and there is nothing that recipients must do. These courtesy transcripts will be sent in the middle of every December and June starting in December 2017.
The following spreadsheet provides direct links to each online course:
This courtesy transcript aims to improve the training experience for researchers who need to complete required research-related training. It was developed in response to stated needs from UF researchers such as the following:
You received a copy because you have previously completed required research training. Anyone who has completed required research training is receiving a copy.
This email is a courtesy so that you can see if and when any of your required research training will expire. You should complete any required training before it expires. The spreadsheet below provides direct links to the online courses where you can register and take the courses:
We intend to send the emails every December and June starting in December 2017.
The Office of Research initiated this project based on feedback we received regarding required research training. In order to deliver on this request we limited the scope of the project to just research related training.
T&OD currently leverages existing functionality and employee data in the myTraining system to distribute expiration notifications for a subset of courses. T&OD continues to work with training partners and Enterprise Systems to identify opportunities to increase the amount of employee data in the myTraining system that can, in turn, be used to develop training audiences and additional training reminders.
