How do I become an IDAC administrator?

It is the AC (Administrative Manager) of the institution who appoints the IDAC administrator at the institution. Once you have been appointed, you need to undergo e-training to gain access to the system. When you have completed e-training, you must request the authorization via the IDAC system, see point 2 below.

There are two parts that are included when a new person needs access to IDAC.

1. E-learning

  • E-Learning: Log in to Canvas go under the menu: Courses--> All Courses-->Browse more courses  and search for "IDAC for Administrators 2022" or click here . The training ends with a quiz. You have the opportunity to the test several times.Once you get them all right, move on to step 2

2. Approval of AC via the IDAC system

Before applying for the role, complete the CANVAS training with quizzes. (all right to be eligible)

Log in to the IDAC portal, link

In the IDAC portal, you choose:

Services → Request access → search for correct role: IDAC-Administrator INSTKOD where INSTKOD stands for Institution Name abbreviation. For example: IDAC-Administrator BioNut.

PLEASE NOTE that the role IDAC-Administrator INSTKOD Reset Password only gives permission to change passwords and for this you do not need to attend training!


Specify a reason when you request this, e.g. that you will work as an IDAC administrator and the date of the training. Once this is done, the request will go to the immediate supervisor and then to the AC for approval.
