There are many training resources available for research administrators.
Contracts & Grants Accounting and the Sponsored Programs Office partnered to develop the Research Administration Certificate Series (RACS), a certificate program for UC Davis research administrators designed to provide participants with a basic foundation for the administration of sponsored programs.
Organizations like Society of Research Administrators International (SRA) and National Council of University Research Administrators (NCURA) present national and regional training conferences annually. They also facilitate webinars and other training opportunities for their members.
For experienced research administrators, the Research Administrators Certification Council offers exams to achieve designation of Certified Research Administrator (CRA®), Certified Pre-Award Research Administrator (CPRA®), and Certified Financial Research Administrator (CFRA).
In addition, there are hundreds of courses available in the UC Learning Center.
