Budget and Data Skills Courses
The NIH Training Center offers several hands-on budget training courses. The full day NIH Federal Budget course is focused on budget operations and systems and is highly recommended for budget managers, budget analysts and Administrative Officers wanting an overview of the budget process. The half-day course is geared more for the scientific community who desire a general overview of budget planning to include a review of budgetary terms and a discussion on fiscal year close out procedures. In addition, we also offer data analysis training with a focus on using quantitative tools and methods using Microsoft Excel.
This 2-day course is designed to go beyond the qualitative side of data analysis. Explore proven quantitative tools and methods for analyzing, interpreting, and utilizing data.
Note: This course was recently revised to include an expanded portion on Budget Execution. This course is designed for new Administrative Officers and Technicians, entry-level Budget Analysts, and Administrative Lab Managers.
