REDCap II: Beyond the Basics

The half-day REDCap II course provides hands-on instruction in aspects of REDCap's functionality that go beyond the basics covered in REDCap I: Introduction to REDCap.  For example: using the data dictionary, longitudinal and repeating data collection, automated survey invitations, importing data, and a look at some more advanced form design elements and workflows.

The REDCap II course is aimed at people with some experience with REDCap project design and configuration (ie.beyond just data entry use), for example (but not necessarily) those that have completed the REDCap I course. It is assumed that participants are fairly familiar with, and comfortable navigating around, REDCap's web interface to perform Project Setup and data entry tasks.

The Trybooking link is available on the information page for each course.  Please note there is an additional Trybooking fee of 30 cents per registration which will be applied when your register online.

    Payment by cost centre transfer (MCRI employees only):

    • Ask your cost centre manager to email MCRI finance dept with a request to transfer funds from your cost centre to CEBU 68092 and CC Fiona Snashall into the correspondence.  
    • Once Fiona receives confirmation of payment from MCRI finance dept she will email you a unique promotional code with which to register.

    Please DO NOT book directly through Trybooking then organise a reimbursement/cost centre transfer after the event. This creates an additional workload for both CEBU and the finance department.
