The SRA International LevelUP Micro-credentialing Program was educational, interactive and helped me solidify my knowledge base of post award, negotiating agreements/award setup and research administration relationships. The learning modules offer in-depth information on research administration topics of interests. It is best to take the modules in order of increasing difficulty. I was able to finish three courses at my own pace while earning continuing education credits for my CRA re-certification. The program also issues credentials that can be shared on email signature blocks and social media to successful individuals.

I have two more courses to take but I am really impressed with the quality of these courses! Just the sort of refresher I needed. My background is actually nonprofit management and I have a Masters in Nonprofit Management from Regis University in Denver, Colorado. The coursework is directly on par with the quality I experienced during my degree work.

I would like to say that I found both of the sessions well planned out and easy to follow. The commentary is clear and the pace of the narrator is very good. I found the information very helpful even as a seasoned person who has worked in the field for 8 years. It was a good refresher course.I do highly encourage anyone to who is new or seasoned to take the course. The reflection and goals will be very helpful to someone new that may not know to ask certain questions about how grants are ran at their employment place.
