Course Description:

This combination Virtual Course/Study Group for ACRP Certification provides guidance, for candidates eligible to take the exam, on how to prepare for an ACRP Certification (e.g., CCRA
®, CCRC®, ACRP-CP®, CPI®).
N.B.: This course will not cover the medical device or project management subspecialty designations.

The certification programs are now aligned with 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 and investigator. The exam covers the 6 relevant guidelines: Declaration of Helsinki, ICH E2A, ICH E6, E8, E9 and E11.

The course will help you 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. The Detailed Content Outlines (DCOs) will be used to customize your personal needs. Ensure you have copy of the DCO available.

This course includes presentation/hand-outs, interactive exercises, discussions and question-and-answer sessions. No contact hours are offered.
