For employers, Certification can serve several purposes from providing evidence of experience and qualifications of a research team to the FDA, or other regulatory bodies, during an inspection, to validating competency when considering a new employee. Recently, evidence has indicated that regulators believe Certification reduces risk to research subjects. There are fewer errors, lower costs, more rapid turnaround, and greater safety in clinical trials when Certified professionals are involved.
Since 1992, the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) has been the leading certifier of clinical research professionals with more than 25,000 professionals holding a designation from our accrediting bodies to date.
