SOCRA's requirements for recertification Continuing Education credit are quite general, as they pertain to clinical research regulations, operations and management, and to the therapeutic area of the clinical research in which the candidate participates. We therefore leave it to the candidate to determine whether a course or program would be acceptable for SOCRA's CE requirement. SOCRA does not “validate” individual training courses/workshops.
Organizations offering courses may use the following text in their brochure/announcement:
"The Society of Clinical Research Associates (SOCRA - www.SOCRA.org) accepts documentation of candidate participation in continuing education programs for recertification if the program is applicable to clinical research regulations, operations or management, or to the candidate’s clinical research therapeutic area. This program offers __ hours of CE credit."
