Electives

Attending ERA Electives is a great way to obtain new knowledge and tools in research administration, and stay updated on both MSU and agency policies and procedures. Once you have obtained your initial ERA Certification, you will need to attend two (2) ERA Electives every calendar year in order to keep your certificate active.

ERA Registration System

Online registration for the ERA series is available on the Office of Regulatory Affairs website at https://ora.msu.edu/train/ (two-factor authentication with MSU NetID required).
