Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Does your webpage allow researchers to track training completions and to set reminders for upcoming training renewals?
The objective of the "Required Trainings" web page is limited to assisting UW personnel in identifying mandatory (ie, required) research training requirements. There is a beta test version of an application that allows all employees to track required training completions and provide information on refresher requirements, where applicable. My Research Training Transcript (MRTT) was launched in the fall of 2014 and may be accessed at
Do researchers who receive funds administered by the University of Washington but who are solely conducting the research at a different institution have to take the trainings published on this webpage?
That will depend on where the research activities occur. The trainings published on our webpage reflect trainings that must occur when research activities occur at the University of Washington. For example, a researcher receiving funds administered by UW but who is doing all research activities at CHRMC is subject to CHRMC research training requirements.
How often is training content on this page updated?
