Get certified as a Clinical Research Professional in 2023!

14 November 2022

Clinical Trials BC is pleased to announce that we will continue the Clinical Research Professional (CRP) Certification Program into 2023. The program supports clinical research professionals working at BC academic-based or health authority-affiliated research sites to become certified by the Society of Clinical Research Associates (SoCRA) or the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP). To date, we have helped over 95 professionals to certify in British Columbia.

Achieving certification demonstrates that you have met or exceeded the quality standards required in the industry and have validated your competence. Certification also demonstrates a level of professionalism and indicates a commitment to conduct clinical trials in a safe, ethical manner and to the standard that is internally recognized. More about the benefits of being a certified professional can be found here: ACRP Certification Helps Your Business Soar – ACRP (

For 2023, Clinical Trials BC will offer a partial reimbursement in the amount of $400 towards CCRP or CCRC examination fees for successful applicants who work for academic health research organizations (health authority, university, non-profit).

Funding is available for up to 20 successful applicants.

Exam prepration sessions

Besides financial support, Clinical Trials BC has also put together a bundle of resources to help you prepare for your certification exam. This includes a series of 5 exam preparation sessions that we will host in January and February 2023.
