The course consists of a presentation on effort reporting and NSU’s process, “how to” videos for using the ECRT system, and helpful handouts (including step-by-step guides on using the ECRT system). This course should be completed by all employees who work on sponsored projects, regardless if they are new or existing users. If you have not yet completed the course, please login to Blackboard.
