  • Core training—courses that program officers should complete during their first year at NIAID, offered as on-demand Web training or annual classroom sessions. See Lock icon: This link will not work for public visitors.Program Officer Core Training.
  • Web courses—self-paced training for program officers and CORs. Consult Web-Based Training
  • Classroom training—several classes each month; most offer ESA credit or continuous learning points (CLPs), as described in class announcements.  

NIH Health Scientist Administrator (HSA) Training

NIH offers core and ongoing training for staff performing HSA responsibilities, including: doctoral-level staff in program and review, grants management and contracts staff at the GS-13 level and above, and management staff working closely with extramural programs.
