Study Coordinator Continuing Education Resources

Clinical Research Coordinators (CRCs) and Project Managers (PMs) certified through SOCRA or ACRP are required to maintain their certification and can do so through completing continuing education credits. SIREN has many available educational opportunities that may be applied toward these continuing education requirements. Many of these resources have been aggregated here to support the network's CRCs and PMs certification maintenance. Please review your recertification requirements on your particular certification, as the requirements for SOCRA and ACRP vary and these resources do not fulfill all of the requirements.
