A New ACCELERATED ACCESS PROGRAM is offered to GCP-trained professionals, who have a diploma but lack practical monitoring experience in CRO activities. Who should attend?
Those who have a short basic GCP training, but have no “hands-on” experience, or who want to move to the industry but don’t know the tasks there.
It is also a must-have for foreign professionals without practical experience in Canadian/US regulatory environment
Research assistants and CRCs willing to move to the industry in Monitor roles will also profit from the 3 internships
Internships are also a door-opening tool for university & college students, who didn’t manage to get an internship during their studies
Not a certification course. The content of the CRP3.0 course is accessible, but there are no exams to delay the advancement.

The International Clinical Research Academy (the CRA School) is the only provider of international clinical research training with internships and job-placement support (Placement Assistance Til Hired; PATH program).
Our program is suitable for candidates with life science background including RN, BSc, MSc, PhD, MD, PharmD, GCP professionals, corporate staff, IRB/REB members.
Our training is universally-applicable and provides students with a solid theoretical and practical base to work in any country.
Our objective is to provide the knowledge and necessary tools that will facilitate access to rewarding careers in clinical research, including Clinical Research Associate (CRA), Clinical Research Coordinator (CRC), Clinical Trial Assistant (CTA), Study Start-Up Assistant (SSU) or Regulatory Affairs (RA).
Our courses provide the building blocks that lead to other fields including Data Management (DM), Clinical Project Management (CPM), Drug Safety Associates (DSA), Pharmacovigilance (PV), Medical-Science Liaison (MSL), etc.
Roles in clinical trials
Regulatory agencies (FDA, Health Canada or other) inspect only a small part of all studies (around 2%). The Sponsor company or individual investigator who initiates a study are obliged by law to periodically monitor the quality of the generated data and ensure that the rights and safety of the study participants are protected. The physicians (PI or sub-investigators) are responsible for the evaluation of their patients and the quality of the data
Data management, quality control & statistical treatment of study data are done by sponsor’s staff, Clinical Research Associates (CRA), in-house Monitors, Data Managers (DM), Drug Safety Associates, Medical Advisers, Biostatisticians, Project Managers and other staff trained on the study protocol, clinical trial regulations and Sponsor’s SOPs.
What is a CRA/CRC?
The Clinical Research Associate (CRA) is a monitor (inspector) who periodically visits the study sites to supervise and inspect the work of the clinical investigators and their coordinators. The CRA verifies their compliance to the protocol and the regulations, makes sure that all regulatory requirements are met and the quality of the data is acceptable. The in-house CRA or the Clinical Trial Assistant (CTA) organize all study-related activities.
The Clinical Research Coordinators (CRC) or the Clinical Research Assistants work in the medical clinics (called sites) where the studies take place. They organize all interactions with the study participants and all the study-related activities at the site. The Principal Investigator (PI) is responsible for the patients’ care, evaluations, and the conformity of all the study conduct with the law and clinical trial regulations in force.
Companies look for good communication skills in English and university diploma, which guarantees that the candidate will be able to understand a research protocol when trained. Life sciences, health care, nursing, biology, biochemistry, biomedical engineering or allied health field are preferred.
For some high-level jobs, an advanced scientific degree is required. Prior experience is always the 1st hiring criterion. The best hiring chances have professionals with some prior practical experience in clinical research activities in N.American regulatry environment.
Health professionals trained abroad often have difficulties when they move to another country. Foreign diplomas may not be recognized and the required local practical experience is missing.
In clinical trials, except for the clinical investigators and their nurses, all the other Clinical Research Professionals do not perform medical acts. They only work with the study data, the clinical trial organization, data quality control and documentation. Therefore, they don’t need any license to practice in the country. Today most jobs became home-based and are done remotely
