This ACRP Certification Exam Preparation Webinar Course provides guidance on how to prepare for an ACRP Certification exam (e.g., CCRA®, CCRC®, CPI®, and ACRP-CP®) for persons planning to take the exam. This course does not cover the project management or medical device subspecialty designations.

Familiarize yourself with the format of the exam, tackle example questions, and conduct a personal gap analysis to ensure you are fully primed to earn your ACRP Certification. 

This webinar course includes a series of three PowerPoint presentations, discussions, and question-and-answer sessions. The course is moderated by an ACRP approved trainer. No contact hours offered.

The ACRP Certification exam was modified in 2017. The certification programs are now reflective of the Clinical Trial Competency Framework developed by the Joint Task Force for Clinical Trial Competency. Knowledge areas reflect current practice as a monitor, study coordinator or investigator. The certification exam has been expanded from 5 relevant guidelines to 6 guidelines: ICH E2A, Declaration of Helsinki, ICH E6, E8, E9 and E11 (Clinical Trials in Pediatric Population).
