SURE Activities

REQUIRED TRAININGS

PEERRS training is required by all.  Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) training is required by most.  Please confirm with your SURE faculty mentor if you are unsure whether EHS training is required for you to participate in your SURE project.  If you have already taken any of these courses, you don’t need to repeat it, just send your certificates in as proof.

PEERRS Training

Certification in the Foundations of Good Research Practices*is required for participation in the SURE program. (approx. 45 mins)
You can complete this training at the University of Michigan’s online Program for Education and Evaluation in Responsible Research and Scholarship (PEERRS) http://my.research.umich.edu/peerrs/.

1.      Take the course: PEERRS requires that you navigate through all the pages in a course and pass the certification test.
2.      Record course completion: After passing the test, use the following steps to record your course completion in My LINC.

  • Click Next in the course’s Certification Results window. (For full credit, do not close this window or click Exit.)
  • Click Next on the following page to record course completion. (This is a key step.)
  • OK to the pop-up window to go to the Learning Activity Progress Detail page. This page must show 100% completion for each chapter in the course and a passing score on the certification test (if applicable).
  • Click OK to return to the My LINC home page.

EHS Training

Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) Online Lab Training is required before you start doing research:

  • If you will be doing any work with biological materials, you also need to take “BLS101w – ONLINE REQUIRED Bloodborne Pathogens Training” (approx. 45 mins)
  • If you need help accessing the EHS training, email SafetyTraining@umich.edu or call the ITS 4-HELP Desk at 734-764-HELP.
