Who is the Course Suitable For?

Regulators are increasingly requesting evidence of competence. Experience alone does not provide evidence of competence. The ACDM, in partnership with the International Academy of Clinical Research, has developed a series of training programs supported by comprehensive course work and interactive sessions, providing independently recognized, competence-based accreditation to support the continued professional development of staff involved in the management of clinical trial data.

The Project Leadership Accredited Training Program in Clinical Data Management is aimed at further developing essential project management and leadership skills. The training courses are highly interactive and supported by comprehensive materials and evaluated course work.

This course is aimed at data management professionals who have some hands-on experience across data management or are new to the data management role
