WHY ACRP-PM®, AND WHY NOW?
ACRP is introducing the ACRP-PM® credential in direct response to growing demand for validation of clinical research-specific project management competency. As the needs of the clinical research enterprise evolve, ACRP is continuing to develop certification programs to meet those needs.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
All clinical research professionals with an existing ACRP Certification in good standing can earn the ACRP-PM® Subspecialty Designation.
“While many project management certifications exist, there is a need for a high-quality assessment of project management specific to clinical research. We are excited to fill this gap and provide industry with a resource for validating project management competency in the workforce. By earning the ACRP-PM subspecialty designation, professionals of all types can show they have not only earned the flagship certification in clinical research through ACRP, but have also demonstrated knowledge in the project management subspecialty.”
JIM KREMIDAS, ACRP EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
DO I NEED TO BE ACRP CERTIFIED TO EARN THIS DESIGNATION?
Yes. The ACRP-PM® is a subspecialty designation only available to clinical research professionals who currently hold an ACRP Certification in good standing.
WHAT WILL BE REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN MY ACRP-PM®?
Once earned, the ACRP-PM designation will be automatically maintained as long as the credential holder maintains his/her existing ACRP Certification(s). No additional continuing education/continuing involvement points or fees will be required.
