The SRAI training programs are awesome! St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital hosted three training opportunities over the last year. My staff and some department administrators enjoyed the convenience of onsite training. The training included two full-day sessions that went by so fast. I met with the faculty before their arrival to discuss the areas that I need addressed and discuss case studies. The faculty is extremely knowledgeable and well respected in the Research Administration field. All of the presentations were well organized and allowed for a lot of audience participation.

NAVREF has been pleased to partner with SRAI for research administration training workshops in 2018 and 2019. Their trainers are extremely knowledgeable, accessible, and engaging. Our members have found the workshops to be valuable learning experiences. SRAI staff has been responsive and customer-focused, making the coordination quick and easy. We look forward to continuing to work closely with SRAI for our training needs!
