The Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) is providing clinical trial sites with an innovative one-week training program that promises to rapidly deliver competent clinical research coordinators (CRCs).
ACRP’s CRC Boot Camp is an immersive, experiential training program putting CRCs through a mix of didactic learning and practical simulations of real-life scenarios to aid learning retention and immediately develop the competencies required of high-quality, early-stage CRCs.
The 5-day program ensures CRCs have a demonstrated ability to immediately and successfully manage tasks related to informed consent, IRB submissions, study visits, essential documents, safety reporting, monitoring visits, and inspections.
“We are thrilled to improve site operations through this first-in-kind program,” says Jim Kremidas, ACRP Executive Director.
“By leveraging the CRC Boot Camp, sites will now be able to focus on their core business while CRCs are trained on the essential competencies required for their unique role in clinical research,” Kremidas says. “Building competence in clinical research is a critical goal in achieving our mission to promote excellence in clinical research, and this program is yet another milestone in ensuring that clinical research is performed ethically, responsibly, and professionally everywhere in the world.”
ACRP’s CRC Boot Camp blends 8 hours of online training with 40 hours of in-person training and exercises to ensure CRCs can immediately and effectively contribute to site operations. Upon successful program completion, sites and CRCs will be equipped with documented competence verified by ACRP, a credible, independent non-profit organization with more than 40 years of experience in the clinical research enterprise.
ACRP’s CRC Boot Camp is immediately available for clinical research sites around the world.
