Course Description: 

This ACRP Certification Exam Preparation 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 information for those testing for the project management or medical device subspecialty designations

This course will familiarize attendees 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 course includes a series of PowerPoint presentations, discussions, practice questions and question-and-answer sessions. The course is presented 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).

Course Learning Objectives:

1.        Be able to list and use the benefits of certification to drive their exam preparation efforts.

2.        Be familiar with the question-style and layout of ACRP’s Certification exams, including how to approach their multiple-choice format.

3.        Be able to identify and describe at least three (3) strategies for preparing for ACRP’s Certification exams.

4.        Be able to use and reference the six (6) relevant guidelines used to create the ACRP’s Certification exams:

    • ICH E2A - Safety Definitions 
    • ICH E6 - Good Clinical Practice 
    • ICH E8 - General Considerations for Clinical Trials 
    • ICH E9 - Statistical Principles for Clinical Trials 
    • ICH E11 - Clinical Investigation Of Medicinal Products in Pediatric Population
    • The Declaration of Helsinki 
    • Be able to assess their individual level of readiness by practicing exam questions based on the Detailed Content Outline (DCO) under training conditions (NOT exam conditions)
