To familiarize NIAID extramural professional staff with their roles and responsibilities, NIAID, NIH, the federal government, and various aspects of their jobs.
Many extramural professional NIAID staff must take the NIAID extramural staff training and NIH extramural scientist administrator (ESA) training. See Extramural Staff Training Overview for more information.
Contracting officer's representatives (CORs) must also take mandatory acquisitions training. See below for details.
NIAID offers three types of Institute-specific training for program officers, and contracting officer's representatives. All extramural staff are welcome to participate.
Most training earns ESA credit or continuous learning points (CLP). For more information, go to Program Officer and Contracting Officer's Representative (COR) Training.
NIH's ESA training program provides core and ongoing information for staff performing ESA responsibilities.
