Through the Human Research Training website, University of Minnesota research professionals and their supervisors can create and manage customized training plans. 

How to get a customized training plan

Step 1: Create a training roadmap

  • Answer questions about your University position, research role, research tasks you’re responsible for, and the research studies you’re involved in. 

  • Using this information, the secure, interactive mapping tool prescribes a curriculum of required and optional human research training courses customized specifically for you. 

Step 2: View your customized curriculum

  • Go to the “My Training” area to view your customized curriculum of required and supplemental human research training.

You also can upload your own immunization, training completion, and certification documents in the “My Profile” section.

Capabilities for supervisors

Clinical research professionals’ supervisors and managers can also use the tool, which allows them to:

  • Manage their research team’s training portfolio.

  • See their direct reports’ training courses and credential history. 

  • Proxy one of their direct reports, if needed.
