Why Achieve Qualified Professional Status?

Qualified Professional Certification symbolizes to employers, sponsors and clinical trial patients that you are professionally qualified in your field and that you have passed an independent, internationally recognizable assessment of competence in a real clinical research workplace environment. Upon achieving Qualified Professional Status you will be:

  • Awarded designatory letters relevant to your professional status
  • Entitled to use the Professional Status Badge relevant to your role
  • Entered onto the Register of Qualified Clinical Research Professionals

Benefits for Employers & Sponsors

By selecting individuals holding Qualified Professional Status to work on your clinical trials, you can be assured that they are competent and that your clinical trials are in safe hands.

Having competent people reduces error rates and helps mitigate risks, enabling you to bring new treatments to market faster.

CROs developing early talent through the accreditation process have reported that their staff are billable up to 4 months earlier because sponsors are reassured by the robust, meaningful and independent nature of IAOCR’s accreditation process.
