SPA Training — Certification

A reminder that all eight tests for SPA Training and Development certification are on-line and accessible via Blackboard.  In order to receive certification, you must successfully complete and pass all eight modules, which entails no more than one wrong answer per test.

SPA Training Certification provides a verification standard for all who pass, and is an indication that participants have a basic working knowledge of the presented material.

Information in Research Administration changes constantly and the material in these courses will be amended accordingly.  SPA Training gives the user an opportunity to not only learn new things but, also provides a refresher on familiar topics.  In addition to the on-line material and tests, live training sessions, which are usually held weekly, provide for lively discussions and sharing of processes and ideas.  You can check the Events Calendar on the SPA website for dates, times, and locations.

  • For access to tests, log into Blackboard with your Access ID and Password; look for the Sponsored Program Administration link in “My Courses”.
  • For presentation material, check the SPA Training & Development website.
