Training Fellows

ARMS Training Fellows is a title given to an individual recognised by the Accreditation Council as having the knowledge and skills to present module material for the Foundation Level Accreditation Program.

The Accreditation Council, the committee authorised for overseeing quality standards of module content, previously called for nominations from qualified and experienced research managers to form an initial pool of presenters for the delivery of modules. These authorised module presenters have been designated ARMS Training Fellows and are recognised by the Accreditation Council as having the knowledge and skills to speak authoritatively on selected areas of research management and the ability to effectively train others.
