About this course
Reasons to attend
This Junior CRA training will train you in the basic, yet crucial areas within clinical monitoring. All typical tasks of a Clinical Research Associate (CRA) will become clear to you, from selecting the investigators until study site close-out, with a great focus on the “monitoring practice” and an introduction on the impact of digitalization.

- This course has been granted PharmaTrain Recognition
Classroom:2-Day face-to-face: 09:00 - 17:00

Junior CRA training: Focussing on the different phases of the life cycle of a clinical trial, this introductory course is specifically designed for people who have between zero to twelve months’ monitoring experience. The course covers all operational activities of monitoring. Dummy trial documents are used in the interactive workshops to share real-life operations. It is, however, mandatory to have previously attended training on “Good Clinical Practice (GCP)”, as the aim of this course is to enable you as a CRA to implement the GCP requirements into your daily monitoring tasks. Become an expert in GCP with our classroom training or our eLearning course.

I received the certificate of the comprehension test, everything is perfect! Thank you very much for all your support and help, and I would very much like to also extend my sincere gratitude and thanks to all of ECCRT staff for the wonderfully organised training for Junior CRAs on 21-22 Jan 2010 in Brussels, of which I hold excellent and warm memories! The course was really first-class, very knowledgeable, professionally useful and conducted in a very amibale atmosphere! All my best wishes to you and your team, and I hope we will have further opportunities for mutual cooperation in the future!

“The 2-days Tailored Junior CRA training at ECCRT was a nice experience. Trainees without or with limited experience in the field of clinical research returned with a good understanding of their duties. The course had a good mix of theoretical sessions and practical workshops. In a relax, but professional atmosphere, there was always time and opportunities for questions and discussions.”

Surprisingly I learned a lot in this short time. The course was very interactive and never boring. I would recommend the course to my colleagues even if they are not CRAs.
The intensity of the course is very good for beginners. I did not feel bored or overloaded. The trainer, Dr. Verbeeck made the material 'alive' and made good references to the practice and personal experience. She is very knowledgable. A great professional with deep understanding of the topic
It's the second course I attended at ECCRT. I had the pleasure to have Marleen Verbeeck as trainer. She is really an excellent teacher, always available to repeat if necessary, very good in the explanations and the clear passion she has shown kept our attention alive during both days. Thank you all for the quality of the course! Regards, Roberta
I attended the Clinical Research for Junior CRAs in April 2016 and I would recommend it. It's a very broad, comprehensive course, covering all aspects of clinical research. The speaker was very knowledgeable and not only explained all our questions but as well excited us even more with the topic. I am considering going for other ECCRT courses, because the experience has been quite positive.

The course was very well structured, and we received useful materials (presentation slides, articles, links, templates of monitoring report,...). Dr. Marleen Verbeeck has an extraordinary experience, and she is motivated to give the attendees the best support. She could very clearly address any issue we presented and any questions we asked. She explained very well, providing many practical examples. There was time for workshops and discussions.
I have obtained more knowledge on the full process of a clinical trial, from the pre-study and initiation until close-out. Furthermore, I have learned what are crucial points to review during and in between monitoring visits and what are the responsibilities of the parties involved - Interactive course, small group, motivating trainer.

This course is hands-on and useful for use in work activities on site - I do what I can and I have the means to upgrade my knowledge and support the effectiveness and mostly the reliability of the clinical trial processes and data.

It is a well organised course in which all the aspects important for a junior CRA will be explained. Since I am working in the Academic, I thought it was really nice to get more insight in how things are be done in the companies. It was really good, it was a small group of people (6) so we were able to ask all the questions we want to ask. The trainer had a lot of experience, so she had great examples which help a lot to remember things. This was the first time the course was given in Leiden. This is an excellent choice. The Biotech facility is a great facility to have this course. It was really convenient to get there from the train station. The handout book we got, was really helpful to have all the information in 1 place. The notes could be made next to the slides. Great!!
I have now a better view on all activities to be done by monitors and even a bit more. Moreover, the workshops helped to put in perspective the theory we just learnt and to - The workshops, even if the check of the eCRF was a bit long and the quiz at the end of each part.

I've manage to acquire new information on the full process, from beginning to end of a complete list of tasks a CRA has to fulfil. - The workshops have help the info sink in. Meeting new people. Finding out how the clinical research world works in other countries - It is very well structured, delivered and useful.
