Full course description
The “Responsible Conduct of Research Certificate – Faculty/Scholars/Staff” requires four (4) REd RCR foundation classes along with one (1) elective class for a total of ten (10) contact hours to receive a certificate of completion. The class offerings can be found below. The majority of the classes need to be completed in-person to meet NIH and NSF training requirements; one class can be completed online. This requirement translates into three (3) in-person classes and two (2) online classes. In addition, two (2) of the in-person classes need to be part of the required foundation classes. Completion of this certificate ensures that you are trained in the eight (8) subject matter areas that NIH and NSF include in their training requirements.
It typically takes two (2) semesters to complete this certificate since some classes are only offered twice a year rotating between in-person and online. As a result, it is critical that you plan your class schedule accordingly.
