Why Become A Clinical Research Associate?

clinical research certification online

Over 1.9 million students receive a bachelors of science every year. While a few go on to PhD, Masters, and Medical programs; many are ready to start clinical research certification online to start a career in the frontiers of medical research and patient care. As a new student applying to the science job market, you may only find internships or recognize that even entry-level science jobs requires 1-2 years of experience. More so, you may realize many of these jobs require intense labor in the lab or just did not meet your expectations for your science degree. This is why a career as a CRA should be considered with clinical research coordinator training. We train over 100 students each month in clinical research coordinator training and clinical research associate training (depending on prior background).

A Clinical Research Associate or Coordinator directs and supervises clinical trials that are run by physicians, nurses, and other science-degree holders. Unlike the jobs you currently can apply to on the market, a position as a CRA is actually much more difficult to obtain. While many generic courses exist on the market; we have seen that many of these students cannot find a job afterwords because of the lack of content depth. This is why our course offers a Senior Clinical Research Associate level of training with 110 intense modules. This science-based medical position is now a high-demand job which can be done privately for pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer, or academically in medical schools. We have the largest number of clinical research courses online.

Nonetheless, for those who have always wanted a career in medicine or have a gap year before medical school; Clinical Research Training is the next step to getting a head start in your career. Because the position is unlike actually working in the lab and requires a management role; you get 1-on-1 connections with physicians and medical staff that can lead to a better application for medical school and other medical careers later on.

Best of all; many of these positions accept remote staff (and some allow you to travel 45-75% with full expenses including travel, accommodation, meals, and other per-dime expenses covered). Clinical Research Training can help you save money while also increasing your salary. CRA’s with our level of training can expect to make between $6,500-$12,000 a month with an estimated promotion rate of 33% a year; an amount that is not common in other science-degree careers.

Many CRA students are actually matriculated foreign doctors who opted not to take the USMLE or repeat their residency training. In fact, some of our Clinical Research Training Students come to us immediately after moving to the U.S. and questioning what to do with an MBBS degree in US.

Unlike what you’ve learned during your 3-8 years in university or graduate school; the information needed for Clinical Research Training after your degree. Is rarely a repetition of any course you’ve taken before and thus we have 110 Clinical Research Training modules (more than any other course available) to make you get the position you want as a CRA.


110 Clinical Research Training Modules

The course covers 110 modules a CRA must know like the back of their hand. Based on your goals, we establish an hourly study schedule in your day to finish each module.Most students receive interview requests just 1 month into the course; another reason why the modules are self paced.


30+ Days

Online Clinical Research Training is provided depending on your background and need. During this online experience, you will understand and apply the actual role of a CRA and be fully immersed in a remote position in our mock trials.

Careers With

Clinical Research Coordinator Training

clinical research Associate training

While several careers exist with a science degree, the best exposure to a medical career with a science bachelors is through Clinical Research Training. This can be taken as early as your senior year of college to prepare for a job directly out of university.

CRA positions right out of undergrad are nearly impossible to get due to the yearly 1.9 million graduates of science degrees (and approximate 2,000 applications per position). This is why Clinical Research Training is an essential investment in your career.

CRA positions after hiring will cover the expenses of travel, housing, food, and more if visiting clinical sites. Most pay $6.5-12k a month with the potential to move on to a CRA position after 2 years.

While many positions will fund or reimburse your CRA training; securing an initial position is the tough part. This is why our Clinical Research Training provides 110 clinical research training modules and interview preparation with a Senior CRA and Physician of 25 years.

Our Clinical Research Training makes almost anyone interested in making use of their science degree in medicine possible. We take on students with no medical background to full-on doctors looking for a better position due to their international medical degree.

We also offer private Principal Investigator Training for practicing physicians.

See available positions here to understand why CRA certification is essential to obtaining a career in medicine with a science degree.

Prerequisites For Clinical Research Training

Designed For Nurses, Physicians, and Science Graduates To Earn The Knowledge of A Senior Clinical Research Associate In 30 Days with Clinical Research Training Online.

CCRP Course has successfully trained over 1,000 students through our instructors. Our lead instructor, Dr.Kamal T Dhaliwal has worked in the industry for over 25 years. In this time, she alone has lead education efforts for Clinical Research Training for many companies. With a background in education, the modules produced by our Senior Clinical Research team educate students up to the Senior Clinical Research Associate level regardless of current background. This has allowed clinical research training students to surpass the need for further training once hired, allowing for quicker promotions and hiring.

Unlike institutes which offer several types of training costing upwards of $7,000 to get up to the Senior Clinical Research Associate education, our single Clinical Research Training course trains all students up to this level. Most importantly, it provides access to students with less than the required 2 years of clinical research monitoring experience to become certified in the industry and secure their first job. In Clinical Research Training, students choose our course due to gaining 1-on-1 access to 110 clinical research training modules, and intensive training that can be completed in 30 days (and sometimes less). This allows students to choose the pace they want to enter the new industry and also complete the course online while working, studying for licensing exams, or waiting for residency/medical school entry.

Travel or Work Remote

While 90% of our students are physicians (MDs, MBBS, IMGs), many students find a position paying more than they expected. Their favorite part of the position is being able to choose to travel (expenses covered) or work remote.


Clinical Research Training for Science Graduates

Science graduates with a bachelors, masters, or PhD in science fields often look into Clinical Research Training in order to advance their career. Working as a clinical research associate is one step up the ladder compared to an assistant or conducting the trials yourself. Rather than conducting the trials, you are put in charge of several trials in many medical hospitals, schools, and pharmaceutical labs around your region. The companies place priority on their staff for promotion which is why there is a 33% chance of promotion in the first year. Premed students in their gap year prior to medical school choose the Clinical Research Training route to get relations with admissions and faculty of medical schools while earning over $60,000 a year. Students with a masters of PhD are seeking the option to earn over $100,000 a year in a field that fosters a similar amount of discovery and exploration as their programs. Clinical research jobs offer this opportunity as well as the ability to transfer into management positions in the pharmaceutical and medical industry.

Clinical Research Training for Nursing Graduates

RNs and BSNs looking to enter the management field without excess on-floor or heavy-duty hours look into clinical research training as the next step. While 90% of our students are physicians, more than half of the clinical research associate workforce are former nurses. The position allows nurses to early more while working in a job with less demanding hours. Clinical research associates are commonly nurses because of their prior medical experience and many companies look to hire while keeping this background in mind. Many companies look for nurses also because of their attention to detail which is needed in the high-stakes field of clinical research where observation of trials and data is key. Because we provide up to the Senior level of clinical research training, nurses do not need further certification to be promoted if they are already in the field.

Clinical Research Training for Physicians (MDs, MBBS, IMG, FMGs)

90% of our students are physicians who are trained US medical graduates with or without residency, MBBS graduates, International Medical Graduates, and Foreign Medical Graduates. Many physicians choose to switch to clinical research because physicians are quickly hired and promoted along the pharmaceutical or medical institution they work for. Physicians who are taking the USMLE work as CRAs during their waiting year(s) in order to work in a job that pays enough to save, support their family, or give them enough time to be with their family by working remote. Physicians who were unable to find residency also choose this path because clinicians are treated as doctors in this field when monitoring and can still hold their MD title while working. Further, no physician is considered over-qualified for this position as most will be promoted to Senior CRAs within the first year. This can also be the best option to earn over $100,000 with a career more flexible and less demanding than many physician careers. Many physicians choose to enter the management sector as COOs, CEOs, and company executives after their first few years.



CCRP Course covers double to triple the amount of course content than other courses. While many courses are simply 5-20 simple interactive modules, our course covers 110 dense modules in thorough detail. After each session, students can ask their questions privately with the course instructor, all of whom have 15+ years of CRA experience. We offer clinical research courses distance learning.

There is a huge shortage of well-trained CRAs, but many companies are reluctant to hire untrained entry-level clinical monitors because of patient and trial safety. Because of this, even the beginner entry-level jobs require certification or training. Most courses provide very light training that may look good because of the company names, but alone is not sufficient to pass the interview rounds a company conducts. Because we prepared our modules to stand by you even as a Senior Clinical Research Associate, we find more of our students with no background quickly passing their interview rounds. Our program is considered one of the top clinical research graduate programs online.

Currently, 82% of our students are hired within the first month of taking the course. Students with limited background or those looking to gain extra experience are offered a remote internship of up to 6 months during the time they are interviewing. This advantage allows many students with limited experience to get hired with a higher paying job than previously offered. For exam, nurses are offered our clinical research nurse training and can additionally take our clinical research management training.

While a majority of our students are physicians, a majority of the CRA workforce are Science Grads and Nurses. We train at a Senior CRA level for all students regardless of background because clinical research monitoring is vastly different from any lab or science course you may have taken. Clinical research associates are given the protocol of a study including all medical protocol that must be followed but because they do not diagnose or treat, the medical knowledge is supplemental but not sufficient in this career path. This is the main reason why our Clinical Research Training includes all possible scenarios you may face at the protocol and guideline level in your future company.

Principal Investigator Training

CCRP offers online principal investigator training to physicians and doctorate-level degree holders interested in beginning a career as a PI. The principal investigator training course is a 1-on-1 course designed to assist in obtaining the knowledge needed for initial PI roles. Because US PI certification requires at least 6 months of experience as a principal investigator, physicians in our online principal investigator training program seek this course to assist in their preliminary positions as a PI prior to the national PI certification exam.

clinical research training

60 hours

Our 60 hour principal investigator training course is designed to be one of the highest-density courses in the industry for principal investigators. Obtaining 60 hours of training on a 1-to-1 basis allows for doctorate-level degree holders to gain fundamental skills to secure a position as a principal investigator. This also ensures the basis of the online course to be beyond that of broad concepts, and tailors to each student’s needs in applying the concepts.

online, self-paced

CCRP offers online, self-paced modules for principal investigators because we understand the demand of current jobs, research internships, board-certification exams, and family that can impact learning. While these modules are self-paced, all principal investigators are monitored daily by our Senior PI instructor to ensure adequate speed and retention.

Remote internships offered to select Clinical Research Training applicants.

Enroll for our clinical research training internship and/or our course by selecting your schedule first. Internships are remote and offered on a month-to-month basis for students. Courses allow for internships after Clinical Research Training completion.

I Have A Degree In Science/Medicine. Now What?

We cover all the common questions our bachelors graduates ask when desiring a medical career with a bachelors degree.


A masters is an option many science degree holders take but it not always the best bet. Now, many masters science degree holders apply for jobs but are still placed in a lab and in a work environment they do not see growth in. A masters will only further your position in the lab, and less so in a career with potential. The best option is to consider a thorough Clinical Research Training course that can establish the experience and clinical research training needed to be hired, succeed, and advance in a medical-focused science career.


Many MBBS or foreign medical graduates opt to not take the USMLE or finish residency again but still desire a medical job with a similar amount of professionalism and recognition. A CRA position is the best next step after an MBBS in the US to work as a medical professional alongside many doctors who you will actually supervise and have equal-level relationships with. We offer advanced training for CRA certification for this very purpose. In fact, 20% of our Clinical Research Training graduates are MBBS holders, many others are IMGs.


When you look for science degree jobs; most of them are in the lab actually conducting trials whereas a CRA supervises and reports them. If you want to apply your science degree without the manual labor of pipets and syringes, a CRA position can establish your footing in medical-leadership roles with your Clinical Research Training.


The best known remote jobs for science degrees are CRAs after getting Clinical Research Training. You can work from home making $6.5-12k a month while having your internet, cell phone, printing, and laptop expenses reimbursed.


Feel like you haven’t seen enough of the world because of studying so much in undergrad? CRA’s have the option to travel 100% with food, housing, and travel covered. You can choose which sites you want to travel to and arrive early to explore the cities and countries even more after Clinical Research Training.
