The Finance and Administration Specialized Training (FAST) Program at the University of Kentucky strengthens business and financial operations in accordance with university policies and best practices to ensure greater trust, transparency and accountability across our campus.


The program begins with five introductory Financial Foundations courses due within 60 days of enrollment. It continues with on-going training that requires participants to complete two courses every six months before compliance deadlines in June and December.

In the on-going portion of the program, participants select the courses they would like to take from the FAST course library. At this time, courses cannot be repeated for credit toward compliance.
