View Training Completions for your BioARROW Protocol Study Team Members

In the protocol workspace, under “Activities”, select the option “View Study Team Training". This will bring up a window displaying the names of your protocol's Study Team Members and their Training Status. 

The training information in the "View Study Team Training" is accurate within 1-3 business days.

To view training for an individual, select their name to open a display of the training courses that individual is required to complete for the protocol.

Training status will show as Complete, Incomplete, Renew, Expired or Exempt.  For each training course, the most recent completion date will be displayed under "Completed".  The "Expiration" column displays when that training expires and will need to be renewed to remain in compliance with this protocol.

Need a NetID login for Canvas or ARROW?

UW NetID is used to log in to applications at UW-Madison & UW-System. You must use a NetID to access the ARROW protocol system and the Learn@UW Canvas online course system. NetID login service is maintained by UW-Madison Division of Information Technology (DoIT)

New UW-Madison Faculty/Staff and Students

A NetID should be issued to you upon employment or student registration and you would have set up a password. Your NetID may look like an email such as ""; "name123" is your NetID. If you do not have a NetID, please contact your PI or lab manager/supervisor.

If your NetID is not working to log in to Canvas or ARROW, please see the NetID Help documents and inform your PI or lab manager/supervisor.

NetID for non-UW Lab Members (guests, visitors, volunteers)

A NetID can be requested for individuals from outside UW who will work on your lab and must access Canvas biosafety trainings and the BioARROW protocol.

Step 1: The PI or Lab Manager/designee should see if their local/department HR representatives have or are planning to submit a request for the visitor(s) NetID. If so, then please follow up with your HR until your visitor has the NetID information. Please request that the NetID be set up to have Canvas access.

Step 2: If you have confirmed that your local/department HR will not set up a NetID for the visitor(s), then you may contact the OBS Biosafety Trainer and request visitor(s) NetID setup. We will need each individual's name and email.

  • If the individual has an "" email, then they likely already have a NetID. We cannot set another one up for you. Contact the DoIT Help Desk if you don't remember your NetID.

Step 3: Once NetID setup is initiated for you, then you will receive an email invitation from "Manifest" to begin your setup process. Please follow the email prompts to setup your NetID. You will receive an email confirmation from the Manifest system when the setup is complete.

New NetID Delay

It may take up to 4 days for the new NetID to be recognized by Canvas and/or ARROW. You will not be able to log in right away with your new NetID.

To avoid frustration, please wait at least 1 day before attempting to log in to Canvas or ARROW. And continue to attempt logins for up to 4 days.

After 4 days, if you are:

  • unable to log in to Canvas, please contact the DoIT Help Desk for troubleshooting. OBS cannot troubleshoot this issue with you.
  • unable to log in to ARROW, please contact OBS Biosafety Trainer for assistance
