CRP 3.0 Accredited Post-Graduate Certified Clinical Research Professional On-boarding Program with 3 remote internships, Drugs and Medical devices

This combined GCP-course covers all roles in the clinical trials industry and in academia, that don’t require a license to practice medicine, like CRA, CRC, CTA, SSU, DM, RA, CSM, CPM, even DSA, PVS, MSL, etc. The 3 remote monitoring internships and 7/7 LIVE Support with Unlimited Placement Assistance Till Hired (PATH) are integral part of the program.

It is an individual, self-paced 100% ON-LINE Certification and Job Insertion Program with LIVE support directly from Level II specialists and mentors till midnight E.S.T (UCT-5), provided 7 days per week. The concept is focused on the main objective – to get the first job, and to never be left alone and forced to learn from one’s own mistakes.

Unlike other courses, the program is very detailed (1000+ pages) and competence-oriented, with practical tasks in two Phase II/III studies on metabolic syndrome and LDL-cholesterol and work on Clinical Data Management in a phase IV diabetes study with the EDC (Electronic Data Capture) and CTMS (Clinical Trial Management System) software Datatrak. Depending on students’ availability, it takes 6 months or more to complete. Due to our active support and networking, almost 60% of students get jobs before the Final exam.
