The Accelerated Program of Education, Exposure, and Experience for CRAs (APEX CRA) provides foundational clinical research training - including project and system experience - to new CRA hires who are recent college graduates and have less than a year of monitoring experience. The APEX CRA program transforms them into credible and experienced CRA Is.
As they progress through the program, APEX CRAs perform billable project tasks to support the CRAs and Clinical Operations Leads (COLs) with a focus in three developmental areas: Project Support, Initiation CRA support, and Site Facing support. They are required to complete the ACRP Entry Level Knowledge Assessment and are enrolled in a 1-year membership to the ACRP.
APEX CRAs work closely with CRAs to gain exposure to and experience with the CRA role and its responsibilities across a period of three to six months. They get the opportunity to practically apply in-class concepts with day-to-day application by working with clinical systems including Clinical Trial Management Systems (CTMS), Electronic Data Capture, Safety Information Systems, and TMF platforms. Instructor-led trainings are supplemented with ongoing coaching and support of Line Managers and COLs.
APEX CRAs accompany CRAs for observational and co-monitoring support on-site or during remote visits which combines learning for the APEX CRAs and workload aid for their CRA colleagues. Upon completion of the program, APEX CRAs are well-positioned to independently function within the CRA role and to immediately begin successful monitoring.
