The course is a live online training, using Zoom video conferencing from the comfort of your home.
The course spans 2 days, Saturdays and Sundays. Saturday is usually around 6 to 8 hours and Sunday is around 4 to 6 hours. This depends on the questions that come up and the discussions we have during the course.
I will show you complete tools that are ready to go and after the weekend training you receive all those documents and tools. You also receive the 60-page course manual, so you can follow along during the course without having to worry about writing along.
The course content is refreshingly simple to understand. CRAs expect a training to be filled with complicated terminology and whatnot. Not in this course.
Following the actual course weekend, the program includes two 1-hour follow up meetings for any questions you may still have. The follow up meetings are one-on-one with me.
For two reasons:
Unfortunately, no. If you are looking for a training in the very basics of becoming a CRA, then this program is not for you. There are several great CRA training programs available (e.g. www.TheCRAacademy.com) that you will want to look into.
I want to talk to you first and make sure that the course is a good fit for you. In two days I will show you how to be a stress-free CRA. However if you do not already have a background in monitoring and/or clinical trials (i.e. you're a CRA or experienced CRC), I will point you towards better options for you. During the course we cover everything that you as a CRA deal with on a day to day basis. If I also need to explain terminology and common processes along the way, it will explode the time we need to actually get through what we need to cover. Also, this would not be fair to other CRAs taking the course together with you.
