Listed trainings are required if you are conducting any of the following activities, including but not limited to; interaction with human research subjects screening, recruitment for research, regulatory and protocol submissions, research operations, reviewing and analyzing human research data, human research financial, operations and oversight of research support staff. 

IMPORTANT! Trainings are primarily offered through Workday Learning. UPHS-only staff that require access to Workday Learning go through a process that identifies them as Extended Enterprise Learners. Submit a Solutions Center ticket, indicating “Learning Support” as the ticket category and the Workday Learning training you need.

PennChart classes are listed in Knowledge Link (KL). University faculty and staff that require access to KL are considered dual users. A two-step process by which UPHS sponsors request access for Non-Payroll Resources (NPR) is linked here. During the process to request a new PennforPeople profile, the sponsor must also request access to Knowledge Link, which is a new step since March 6, 2023.

The Office of Clinical Research partners with ACRP (Association of Clinical Research Professionals) to provide training modules for the Penn Clinical Research Professionals community.
