Emory's Research Certification (eRAE)
There are two defined tracks by which individuals in the research community can obtain their certification. The first is for those who are Pre-Award Administrators and do not have the responsibility for monitoring budgets in Compass. These classes in this track will provide a higher level understanding of pre-award sponsored programs administration. The second is for Post-Award Research Administrators and will provide a more in-depth understanding of the reconciliation, review and closeout processes for sponsored programs at Emory.
About Your Certification Status
A certification is only good for a term of one year. You must complete continuing professional development educational seminars in order to maintain your certification.
Obtaining Your Certification
Below outlines the course requirements. The tracks are a combination of online and classroom facilitated courses. Each online and instructor-led training registration can be accessed using Emory's Learning Management System (ELMS) or by clicking the links below.
Once all courses are completed, you will need to submit a application. A link to this application is provided in the table below. Please submit the application and a copy of your scores from the online training to OSP-OGCA-EDCOMMS@listserv.cc.emory.edu.

There are no additional educational requirements for the calendar year in which the certification is received. During the following year and each subsequent year, in order to maintain certification, the individual must earn a minimum of 6 points of professional development annually. Annual reporting of this is required via the RAE Re-certification Form.
There are several paths for meeting this certification requirement.
