We’re pleased to offer a partial reimbursement in the amount of $350 towards clinical research examination fees for up to 25 successful applicants who work for academic health research organizations. Funding is provided by the BC SUPPORT Unit.

New for 2019 is the addition of computer-based testing for both Society of Clinical Research Associates (SoCRA) and Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) certifications.

Achieving certification demonstrates that you’ve met or exceeded the quality standards required in the industry and have validated your competence. It also demonstrates a level of professionalism and indicates a commitment to quality standards.

Here’s what two successful applicants from 2018 had to say about their experience:

– Nera, clinical research professional

“Among my peers and supervisors, certification has also brought recognition of the rigorous ethical and quality standards that I follow in my conduct of clinical research. This accomplishment would not have been as readily attainable…if it were not for the generous funding from Clinical Trials BC.” 

– Mannie Fan, Clinical Research Coordinator


The process is simple:

We encourage all eligible clinical research professionals to become professionally certified!
