What Our Clients Say

We were a small clinical training team, experienced within the learning field. However, the majority in the team had a clinical background and not within learning and development. We wanted to get our capabilities certified and benchmarked across the industry to know if were heading in the right direction. IAOCR’s accreditation program provided a good framework, a great atmosphere and room for a lot of good discussions. The course fueled our internal discussions and resulted in our team’s shared view on how we want to set our future learning strategy including all facets of the learning cycle.

Mona Söderblom TMIACR, Head of Clinical Competence & Compliance, Lundbeck

We have used IAOCR for a considerable number of years and it has been a very successful partnership. They worked closely with us in order to develop a bespoke programme that delivered an industry specific accredited Project Management course for those working in the Clinical Trials Industry.

I have no reservations in recommending them!

Mike Yellow, Senior Learning & Development Business Partner, Fisher Clinical Services

IAOCR are different in the CRO world, they have vast experience and are knowledgeable which is an invaluable asset to have.

INC are absolutely pleased with the customer service from IAOCR, I don’t have any complaints which is quite a statement! Throughout the whole process we felt well supported and encouraged in knowing that IAOCR also work on a global scale.

Alistair Macdonald, President & Chief Operating Officer, INC Research

There is great value to working with IAOCR. They provide a superb level of professionalism and tailor their work to the exact organizational needs of your company and never use a “one size fits all” program.

I would recommend any biotech or pharma company of any size to work with IAOCR to improve their organization and build a solid value proposition for employees and their development.

Richard Wood, Director of Global Operations Management, INC Research

I think IAOCR accreditation is really valuable as it means we are all talking the same language when it comes to hiring, developing and describing talent. Currently how we hire and develop people varies widely across the industry. With the accreditation process we know that each individual is qualified and competent and the whole industry will have the same benchmark. Also, we can work with each individual team member to develop them.

Sam Kerr, VP Head of Drug Development Operations, EMEA and Asia Pacific, Allergan

I have only positive feedback about the PM training you delivered in Prague. Thank you very much and I am looking forward to future cooperation!

Chief Operating Officer, Aleš Horáček, Accord Research

I have been working closely with the IAOCR team now for the past two years and I have to say their passion for quality and improving standards in the Life Science industry is inspiring.

IAOCR have been incredibly supportive to SEC Pharma and helping us gain a deeper understanding of how we can add value in the recruitment of professionals to the industry.
