Course Description

The 15-hour Clinical Trial Assistant Fundamentals Program focuses on the responsibilities of the Clinical Trial Assistant or Associate (CTA), a key administrative member of a project team at the sponsor or CRO. This course provides CTAs information regarding the drug and medical device development and approval process. Best practice techniques for collecting and managing essential documentation stored in the sponsor’s Trial Master File are covered in detail. Activities such as knowledge checks, case scenarios, and simulation exercises reviewing essential documentation for correctness and completeness provide the learner with a hands-on opportunity to apply knowledge gained from the course in their daily roles.

The resources required to take this on-line course are already at your fingertips - an Internet connection and a phone. After registering, you will receive an email confirmation that provides you with the Web Seminar link and audio connection information.
