Available Training

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), Controller's Office, and Research Grants and Contracts (RGC) Office have designed a training program to ensure that research administrators have access to information that will provide them with a foundation of knowledge to assist them in understanding how to appropriately administer sponsored programs at Emory University. These offices provide a variety of educational opportunities related to sponsored program administration with the mission to support and enhance the administrative processes, both internally and externally, for proposals and awards. The courses offer guidance on the rules and regulations governing compliance with federal, University, and contractual sponsor requirements.

Emory uses an online system to manage both its instructor-led and online courses. Register to take these courses through the ELMS (Emory Learning Management System). Instructions are provided below to assist you.

Note: We no longer distribute paper copies of training materials. Find more information and copies of instructor-led (classroom) course materials for our Pre Award specific trainings in the Emory OSP Training Documents accordion below.
