Client Testimonials

The Project Management Course provided by IAOCR was a new and innovative way of providing this kind of training within this industry. My team contained people with varying experience and they all benefitted from it, even though some of them did not meet the accreditation criteria. The follow up work by IAOCR was excellent and really got my team thinking about the training and using it in real life examples which is rarely achieved with other training methods.

The main selling point is the fact that participants have to demonstrate understanding, and that really opened my eyes to the ability of my staff within my team.

They pushed us to the limit…….And we’re so glad they did.

Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined the amount of work that would go into developing the accredited content and assessments for TMF University; we had already developed much of the course content and thought that IAOCR would simply help us “tweek” it so that it could become accredited. IAOCR challenged us in so many ways; their high standards and rigorous accreditation program requirements meant that we had to dig deep and totally reshape our thoughts and our approach to the transfer of knowledge so that learners in the program could come away with a confident understanding of the concepts presented. As a result, TMF University has garnered international appeal and has enrolled learners worldwide in its inaugural enrollment offering. We can’t thank IAOCR enough for partnering with us to bring this accredited program to life. We are proud to work their exceptional team in delivering the world’s first certified training program specifically for TMF professionals.

Working with IAOCR who have extensive clinical research knowledge on this project, enabled us to achieve some consistency in our processes, achieving uniformity across our businesses and ultimately helping us improve our customer service.

Only about 10% of learning is done in the classroom, the learning really happens afterwards within the workplace and IAOCR offered a great solution to this. This kind of structure is necessary for it to be a success. Our clients have been impressed that we have listened to our feedback and put a consistent process in place to address their concerns. We have also had some great feedback internally that the process has been successful.

“”IAOCR helped ICON to design and implement the first-ever competence based training for safety associates.

A key requirement was to make it available across the globe through ICON’s IT training environment. It also had to be aligned with staff’s daily workload. Both objectives got addressed in the way we managed to train and formally accredit 155 of 173 assigned Safety Associates in 4 continents in 18 groups, each group starting a month apart.

Peter Schueler, Senior VP Drug Development Services (CNS) – ICON PLC

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 Project Management course for those working in the Clinical Trials Industry.

The course itself provided both the knowledge and the skills required by our Project Managers unique within our industry and provided them with accreditation based on successful implementation of the project management competencies.

The courses were delivered to a high standard and were very well received by the target group. As such, we have now extended the training delivered by IAOCR globally – covering North America and Switzerland. I have no reservations in recommending them!

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

Establishing a global standard for CRA performance is a game changer for the industry. The industry has come to realise that more training and more experience does not necessarily equate to competence in the field. By being able to measure competence against globally recognized best practices, we’re able to give our customers the confidence to know that the monitors assigned to their studies have not only been trained in their field and demonstrated competence in the latest processes and technologies, but that their skills have been validated against an independent quality standard.

IAOCR are different in the CRO world, the 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 have felt well supported and encouraged in knowing that IAOCR also work on a global scale.
