To register for the event, please visit the event website. NITAAC is not responsible for registration.


This course meets one of the requirements to maintain a FAC-COR certification at NIH. It provides an general review and update of statutory, regulatory, and policy changes and their impact on CORs and discusses how each change affects COR responsibilities and how it should be implemented to ensure legal compliance and to further program interests in acquisition. We also now offer a separate Basic COR Level I class that reviews the responsibilities of a COR that meets one of the requirements to earn a FAC-COR Level I. Further, we also offer an Advanced COR Refresher class for those who desire a more in-depth review or who are interested in earning additional CLPs.

Please contact the Acquisition Career Program for more guidance on specific HHS certification requirements for CORs:
